ford attFord and AT&T have come together so that the latter will be able to offer the built-in wireless connectivity for the new Focus Electric hatchback. Ford engineers/programmers have managed to churn out the pretty comprehensive MyFord Mobile application to work in tandem with their electric vehicle, where it can help the owner keep track of and schedule charging so that it won’t run out of juice. This application will also be able to serve up status notifications, range information, as well as the nearby recharging stations’ locations thanks to MapQuest. AT&T will provide the necessary bandwidth to make tings happen, and Ford makes sure that they have all their bases covered by offering a we-based interface just in case your smartphone isn’t that smart.
