Nice infographic from Mashable about the continued rise of text messaging. Some great stats in there, including this nugget:
200,000 auto accidents in the US every year are attributed to texting while driving.
Wow. Worth a read. Let’s be careful out there. Detail here.

We announced a deal with DriveNTalk at CES in January, to put Dial2Do in to their innovative new handsfree car-kit : the Klat 7.
So let’s explain the name first: “Talk” spelled backwards is “Klat”, and this handsfree carkit understands what you say and talks back to you. Get it? See what we did there? 🙂
Anyway back to the main event. The Klat7 is an installed hands-free kit: you install it in the car like any regular new stereo / music unit, and it uses the car’s speakers to play the audio. It has all the fancy-pants stuff you expect and need of an up-to-the-minute car-kit, including noise suppression and echo-cancellation (translation: great quality sound for you and for the person on the other end of a call).
Plus! It comes with a super convenient remote control that you can put in your favourite spot in the car so that it’s a cinch to control volume, skip tracks, answer calls and more.
And last, but not least, it comes with three months free Dial2Do service “out of the box”.
After that, if you like it, it’s the regular price of $39.95 per year, or $3.99 per month. The units are now in production and for sale across the US. You can buy them online right now. They’re on special right now at $149.95 (normal retail $199.95). For wholesale interest – go here.

Yes, yes. Busy bees are we at Dial2Do HQ. At CES today we announced another partnership for the Dial2Do Handsfree Assistant. With our partners at Enustech, we’re proud to be launching a new installed hands-free car kit called the drive’n’talk (drive and talk – geddit?).
Launching today, the Klat 7 will ship with 90 days Dial2Do Pro bundled, enabling users to text, email and much, much more, while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. This is a first in the installed car-kit market, and so we’re very excited to be working with Enustech to help bring value-add for the busy driver to this segment of the market.
More details at the newly launched site here. Press release is here. Remember, the Dial2Do team is out in force at CES, so if you fancy a chat, please stop by our booth in the Safe Driving Zone.
