Aston Martin Smartphone
Spotted on Tom's Guide, an Aston Martin smartphone concept.
According to Telematics News:
The British luxury car brand Aston Martin, and the Canadian luxury mobile phone manufacturer Mobiado are collaborating to produce a collection of luxury mobile handsets. Together, the companies have unveiled the CPT002 phone concept, at BaselWorld 2011, Switzerland’s premiere luxury goods trade show for the watch and jewelry industry.
The CPT002 software combines with the vehicle GPS providing a new level of social network experience:
FourSquare will show user’s current location as well as the location of his friends and nearby venues all integrated on a GPS map of the Aston Martin car display, to help the user plan his night and organize parking locations.
Cameras integrated into the vehicle can be set to periodically update FaceBook and Twitter with pictures, video, and information of passing cities/landmarks during road trips, or can update social sites in real time with your progress during race track days.
