  • Google, Apple Racing into The Business of Connected Cars

    From Apple's "iOS in the Car," to Google's latest powerplay in the auto sector, the world's biggest giants in mobile tech are focusing aggressively on automobiles today.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, next week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Google and Audi will announce a joint partnership to develop in-car entertainment and information systems that are based on Android.

    They also plan to disclose collaborative efforts with other automotive and tech companies, including chip maker Nvidia Corp., to establish Android as an important technology for future vehicles... The aim is to allow drivers and passengers to access music, navigation, apps and services that are similar to those widely available now on Android-powered smartphones...
    Although Google and Apple have no trouble raking in the cash through their respective mobile endeavors, sales of 80 million new cars and light trucks annually represent a huge opportunity for Internet-based software and services.

    "The car is becoming the ultimate mobile device," Thilo Koslowski, an analyst at Gartner, tells the WSJ. "Apple and Google see that and are trying to line up allies to bring their technology into the vehicle."
