It’s that time of the year again: CES. One of the keynote speakers at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show is Ford CEO Alan Mulally.
Ford is planning to take in-car entertainment and communications a step further.
By 2015 the company wants to equip 80% of its models with all kinds of technological features including web browsing and, yes, social networking.
And what social service was mentioned? Right, Twitter: Ford is adding Orangatame’s OpenBeak (formerly known as TwitterBerry – originally a mobile Twitter tool for BlackBerry smartphones) app to Sync.
Sync is the in-car Internet service Ford developed with Microsoft.
Read Ford’s press release here (there’s much more than just Twitter).
Earlier this year Mulally answered some questions via Twitter.
I did not include a YouTube video about that event but one about Sync, brought from CES by Revision 3.
The Twitter integration is explained in it.
