CES New: Autonet creates a Wi-Fi zone for your car

This in-car Wi-Fi router brings the Internet to the car by offering the first wireless broadband network for passengers (note the emphasis) to check e-mail, chat, surf the Web, game or communicate via any Wi-Fi-enabled device — from media player to laptops to Wi-Fi-enabled cellphones to gaming consoles. As a bonus, Autonet Mobile’s service gives you access to movies, TV shows, music, online games and more. Another version of Autonet has been available on Avis cars since last July; this upgraded product can only be installed by a car dealer at this point in time. It'll be available later this spring; no pricing yet.
