Finally, a good reason to buy a truck this year: Sprint announced last week that the Internet connectivity of the Ford F-Series and E-Series vehicles equipped with in-dashboard computers will come through the Sprint Nationwide Mobile Broadband Network.

Although the advancement seems to be aimed at contractors who spend most of their workday in their trucks, the in-dash computers support LogMeIn , which enables users to remotely access an online PC, complete with all files and applications.

High-bandwidth Internet connectivity, coupled with a full-functioning in-dash computer, opens the market up to sales professionals or any worker who spends a lot of time on the road.
