Israeli firm launches car communications device
A telecommunications firm from Israel has launched a brand new device that can be installed into cars easily and enables hands-free dialling.
Accel Telecom says the Voyager uses an existing phone number via a twin-SIM and a combination of Android based smartphone technology.
The product also makes navigation easier and boasts other features such as crystal clear and echo free sound quality and an in-car 3G WiFi Hotspot connection.
It will help with fleet management as well as it connects to the car on-board diagnostics and the company's CEO, Marc Seelenfreund, is convinced that it will sell well on both sides of the Atlantic.
"We expect strong demand for the new generation Voyager connected car smartphone device in both European and US markets in line with recent industry reports and our own research with industry influencers," he said.
A recent GSMA report has also suggested that the technology will be popular as it said that "every car will need to be connected to the outside world through a cellular network" in future and that a SIM card and communication module was the most effective way of achieving that.
