iCar: Your Next MINI Can Use Your iPhone To Go Online

February 25, 2010

Many car producers have already shown some affection for the iPhone, MINI on the other hand, just wants to exploit it.

Set to be unveiled next week in Geneva, MINI's latest on-board computer system, "MINI Connected", will have the ability to connect to your iPhone via USB and take advantage of its data connection.

When in symbiosis with your iPhone, your MINI will be able to provide you with thousands of radio stations as well as various information such as the weather. It's unclear yet how they achieve this but it's most likely made possible through a dedicated app.

The system will be rolled out starting with MINI's new upcoming model, the Countryman.

This iPhone and MINI duo sounds like a great concept to me!
