OnStar set to introduce in-vehicle video chat via 4G LTE

System appears to be connected via 4G

GM subsidiary OnStar has teased a revamped infotainment system that takes advantage of 4G LTE networks to expand the range of connected features. The company is currently teasing the new system, which will allow users to participate in video chats via Skype. The faster connection speeds also enables users to access streaming multimedia content.

The company released images of a Chevy Volt equipped with the new system, along with two 10.1-inch tablets connected to the back of the front-seat headrests instead of traditional screens. The preview images also show the video chat function that enables connection to contacts or OnStar advisors.

Although the press images show a Chevy Volt with the new OnStar integration, the company will be formally introducing the features next month during a Cadillac event at CES. [via MotorAuthority]
