Chrysler's in-car Uconnect EV-Do system allows you to stay connected over WiFi on the go, with your vehicle acting as a 150-foot wireless hotspot around your whip. It's been announced (in what is quite possibly the world's shortest ever press release) that Sprint is becoming an infrastructure partner with the service. Now you'll be able to tweet while doing 90 on the interstate thanks to the company's Emerging Solutions Group which will have direct responsibility for the partnership.

Update: We've been in contact with Autonet Mobile and Chrysler's partnership with Sprint is in addition to car maker's existing partnership with Autonet. The companies are all working together on the Uconnect product line. We apologize for any confusion or damage the mix up caused.
