Ford is calling this package Work Solutions and it will be offered as a $2,815 add-on for pickups, but can cost less if buyers pick and choose among the features. Ford says that this will help increase productivity to a new level by bringing the office with you in an integrated and seamless package. Ford will partner with DeWalt, Garmin, Master Lock, Microlise, Sprint, Magnetti-Marelli, and Microsoft to deliver these capabilities to buyers.
The Work Solutions gadgets are available on Ford's F-150 light and super duty pickups, and the upcoming Transit Connect commercial minivan. Some of these components will be available for dealer installation in trucks that customers already own. For some people, this might sound like a nightmare. Having your office with you at all times? However, there are those people that absolutely need to be connected with their office in order to work properly. These people will benefit from the office on wheels. It will also make working while traveling a lot easier. You could easily schedule a road trip and still be reachable for work issues this way. [via MSNBC, images via Ford]
