Chrysler Prices Mobile Internet Service At $499 One-Time, $29 Per Month

Chrysler's mobile internet system, UConnect, has finally gotten official pricing, and unless you're the crackberry type with a serious addiction, the $499 initial fee and $29 monthly fee probably sounds pretty steep. The system was developed by Autonet, a company which installs something similar — and portable — in Avis rent-a-wrecks. The initial professional installation costs between $35 and $50, and, combined with the one-time and ongoing fees, this is looking like a worse deal than going Comcastic. [MotorAuthority]
