If Nokia can have its own in-car app so can Samsung. The Korean giant launched the Samsung Drive Link application in its own backyard, initially targeting Galaxy S III users with support for other handsets most likely coming at a later date.
As you would imagine, the app features large buttons and a simple menu, making it easy to operate few phone functions while driving. With a single tap, users are able to take calls, access weather information, music player and fire-up navigation. Moreover, there’s the MirrorLink support, allowing connections with compatible in-vehicle systems.
The best part — as far as carriers are concerned — Drive Link perfectly sings along navigation services provided by major Korean operators like SK Telecom, KT and LG U+.
We’ve no idea when Samsung will unveil this app in other parts of the world, but I would dare to guess that will happen at some point in the first half of 2013. We’ll let you know when we hear something new here…
