"L.M. Ericsson and Mannesmann are cooperating to produce mobile communication systems that will eventually use wireless application protocol (WAP) and Bluetooth to allow equipment in a car's cockpit to communicate with each other and the Internet.

The alliance, formed between a subsidiary of the Swedish telecom company called Ericsson Mobile Communications and Mannesmann, will produce car information and entertainment systems including in-car Internet terminals, faxes, stereo and video capabilities as well as telematic equipment, says Karl-Horst Bockholt, director of public relations for German system supplier Mannesmann.
