Chysler intros Web Edition

Chrysler is taking the next step in bringing the web into cars with a Web Edition option package due to be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week. Along with an in-car router from Autonet Mobile, the automaker is calling uConnect Web, buyers who opt for the $1,999 package also get Dell's Mini 9 netbook, a Sony PSP, an 8GB iPod Touch and an unnamed digital camera with Eye-Fi wireless SD card. All these devices have Wi-Fi modules that can take advantage of the car's built-in router. One year of service is also included with the Web Edition package.

The Web Edition option will make its unveiling in a Chrysler Town & Country minivan at the auto show, and soon become available as a dealer-installed option on Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles. The package is being marketed as the next-generation of in-car entertainment, and should let users connect from up to 100 feet away from their cars. Chrysler will also offer a less costly, $1,100 Web Edition Limited that skips many of the personal electronics and includes the uConnect Web router, one year of service and the Dell Mini 9.

    Seriously

    Well, at least you can buy the uconnect system from the Mopar website without the stupid Dell, but damn-- $499 for the Wi-Fi router plus $383 for a year of internet service.

    Make the PT Cruiser convertible smaller; THEN I'll be impressed.
