Blog: Dave LeggettConnectivity in the car and selling you apps

Dave Leggett | 2 January 2014

Audi and Google look odds-on to announce some kind of partnership on infotainment operating systems for cars at next week's CES [they did, story here]. The idea of the interface for infotainment in the car being much more like what you already have on your cell phone or tablet sounds like a good one. I have come across an interesting article that also points out where the main business opportunities are with this: selling you apps. As a volume business, it's not going to be in quite the same league as phones, but it's certainly another place where Google and Apple can compete.

Google and Audi’s new connected cars are really just about selling you apps
