Sony Ericsson and Saab have worked together on a variety of Bluetooth headsets and handsfree solutions for cars in the past. The 9-X-Air is said to take this cooperation to a new level, allowing XPERIA owners to control select features of the car via their phone according to InformationWeek.
WmPowerUser reports that the program will come in the form of an XPERIA panel, and will aloow you to control the following features:
* Control ambient lightning
* Control front and rear seat settings
* Lock the car
* Open the rear compartment
* Switch on and off the lights (blinkers, main lights…)
Even though I personally doubt that this cooperation will have significant impact on XPERIA sales, it nevertheless shows what is possible for future generations. If the Bluetooth SIG would specify a “Car” protocol, remote control could become a reality one day…
