If you're looking to spend a small fortune to be one of the first Chevy Volt owners sometime in the next 12-18 months, then you'd be interested to know that the you'll be able to have some limited control of the car via apps for Android, BlackBerry, and iPhone. While it wont make you 007, as you can't drive with an app, you will be able to monitor its charging status, set a specific time to charge, honk the horn (just for fun?), check driving statistics, lock/unlock doors (alarm too), but most importantly you can start the car up. All of this is nice, but you'll have to subscribe to the GM OnStar service for it all to work. In the mean time, owners of the Motorola DROID and BlackBerry Storm (v5.0) can download a demo version by visiting the OnStarMobileDemo
web site in their phone's browser, while iPhone users can get the demo from the App Store
. Our only question now is where's the support for Windows Mobile smartphones?
