iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7 support

iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7 support

Is this going to be included?

no, as driving and talking / testing on the phone if forbidden in most of the world
so the car will be designed to block the cell fone signal, so you won't have a signal in the car
that way you have to stop the car, go outside in the rain to receive or make phone calls

but if we complain, they might add Bluetooth support, so we can use the phone as an mp3 player

There have been many questions about what is and is not included. If the Model S is to compete with the BMWs, Audis and Mecedes it will have to have things like bluetooth.

As for specific device requirements, it would be beyond foolish for them to narrowly say it will only have connectivity through an iPhone or Droid or BB.

I'd say Yes, but would assume that Android and iOS support comes online first. And would imagine there will be parity support vs. Audi/BMW for bluetooth.

To be a leader in 2012 they'll need to support cloud based contextual search or allow commands to go directly to the phone.
