Ford Truck Goes Wireless: Mobile Office With Wheels

The next time you consider which vehicle you should buy for your “always on the road” lifestyle consider an upcoming Ford F-250.
Many of you, I know, spend a lot of your business lives on the road at a customer location or in a vehicle. Having a comfortable, spacious and technological functional vehicle is important.
Some of use are comfortable with a traditional desk and chair, while others are just fine in a leather seat with a steering wheel in front of them.
The Associated Press writes A Ford F-250 Super Duty truck equipped with a mobile office is scheduled to debut Tuesday at the Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas. The annual show isn’t open to the public, but it dazzles an estimated 100,000 automotive insiders with souped-up vehicles and the latest aftermarket trends and components.
Ford expects to offer the mobile office as a dealer-installed accessory in 2006. Pricing isn’t finalized, but it would cost around $3,000 for a wireless-equipped computer, printer and global positioning system, Ford spokesman Alan Hall said. Add-ons like a digital camera and credit card scanner also would be available.
