A Safer Mobile Email

Although the Ford Sync allows text messages received by a Bluetooth-enabled phone to be “read” over a car’s audio system, USTelematics (www.ustelematics.com) is taking it a step further with a new technology, Voice Interactive Voice Enhanced Email (Vivee), that reads emails or text messages through either the device’s internal speaker or through the vehicle’s audio system, complete with its own avatar animated character.

Vivee can be loaded directly onto any Windows or Windows Mobile device (Internet connection service is limited to Verizon’s EVDO high-speed network), with plans to expand to other systems—including Apple’s iPhone—in the near future. The system is also available as it’s own handheld device—Vivee2go—that includes GPS functionality for navigation, web browsing capability and MP3/video playback functionality.
