MEF Americas 2011: OnStar Chooses HTML5 Platform

Following the ”Opportunities & Complexities of the Evolving Apps Ecosystem” panel at MEF Americas 2011 I spoke to OnStar’s Steve Schwinke about their plans to launch an application ecosystem.


We discussed:

  • How OnStar will work with smartphones by allowing apps to work either on mobile devices or on in-vehicle systems.
  • On choosing technologies to build a new app ecosystem on and why OnStar chose HTML5.
  • Why developers will find the OnStar platform attractive and how they can address a market beyond GM vehicles.

 I’ve posted on the factors to consider in choosing a mobile application platform and the impact of ecosystems based on my conversation with Steve at the Tribal Labs blog.
