Still open questions

Are any of these questions answered yet? I still can't find the answers, but I guess we will know when the first people get there car on the 22nd.

-What provider and speed (3g or 4g/LTE) will the internet be in the car? What provider is it? What are the pricing options?

-What kinds of connectivity is there to the stereo? Can you connect an iphone via wired or bluetooth for both music and phone calls? Is there a mic in the car for voice control? Will the car automatically download your contacts list? Is there a wi/fi connection to download songs and movies from your home network while you are parked in your garage? Is there any specs on the music or movie formats supported by the car?

-I heard about skinning the UI of the computer screens, is that still going to be possible?

-Is there a SDK announced for developing apps for the car?

-Is there a video of the door handles or sun roof opening and closing? I have never seen them in action anywhere. I stopped by the DC showroom but neither the door handles or sunroof were operational on that car.

-Did they announce for sure that they are using a newer nVidia graphics chip? The car I saw in DC a few weeks ago was really laggy when dragging the screen around on the map (beyond just downloading the map data). It was a bit disappointing performance wise.

Obvious computer nerd super excited about the car. :)

These two are likely to be available in about a year as part of the regular software upgrades.

-Is there a video of the door handles or sun roof opening and closing?

There are a number of them on youtube.

-Did they announce for sure that they are using a newer nVidia graphics chip?

That's what nVidea says in their video. Tegra 2 for the dash and Tegra 3 for the main display. The lag you saw was likely early software. Reports are that the latest Betas have very fast response.

No idea on the phone connection yet.
