The Register reports – “Mobile network Orange and motor maker Daimler Chrysler today pledged to help establish Bluetooth as the “standard for safer driving” with the launch of a car that integrates the wireless technology.
DC’s Smart subsidiary, maker of stubby but stylish two-seater city cars, unveiled a special edition of its City Coupé decked out almost entirely in black flecked with Orange’s own colour scheme.
The vehicle comes bundled with a six-month Orange contract or pay-as-you-go package and a Sony Ericsson T610 handset.

The car has a built-in microphone and relays the conversation through the in-car hi-fi system.”
