In what might be the most puzzling vehicle packaging discussion ever, the upcoming 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK will come with an in car internet system.

We're assuming that nearly 100% of SLK owners have a phone with some kind of data plan, not to mention that there's no a lot of room in an SLK for one to stretch out and enjoy internet browsing. The Mercedes sytem will even use your smartphone's browsing capability, saving you money on a separate data plan, but begging the question "why not just use your phone?"

Internet in SLK and C-Class

If you read the original article closely, it says that it will allow internet via tether to your phone, not a separate device like other manufactures are doing. I hope this will be available to all as a software upgrade.
