GERMANY: Pocket PC added to Mini options list from 2003
From 2003, BMW will offer Mini buyers the opportunity to integrate a pocket-sized PC into the car's electronic systems. The Mini will offer a fully-integrated portable Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) in the form of the Compaq iPAQ pocket PC. The hand-held PDA slots into a bracket on the dashboard above the speedo and features up to four inter-connected systems that download information digitally. When not in the car, the PDA can be connected to a desk-top PC allowing any relevant information to be up- or down-loaded.
