Yes folks indeed it is true as LowYat and PaulTan Proton and YES are going hand in hand in producing a new concept of Proton cars which should be constantly connected, note that I use the word ‘should’.

Anyway Proton has been hitting the high notes recently with the rally win in Sweden and it seems that creativity is descending once again into the company. For months talks surfaced amongst the intelligensia that Proton may opt for partnership with various car companies but to date none of them has materialised. It’s good to see that the maturity of wireless and Wimax (yes YES 4G is Wimax) coming to age here in Malaysia and that collaboration like this is the way to go in terms of realising the potential of a seamless wide coverage of the Internet.
Theoretically Wimax has an advantage when it comes to HSDPA in terms data transmission during in mobility but it like all things in life, theoretically it may be sound yet things may differ quite significantly in terms of implementation. Another issue would be coverage as YES, though it has a reputation of delivering high speed data network, seems to fall short in terms of coverage.
Still no concrete announcement was made in that event, it was merely informing the public about the collaboration and it seems that they’re holding back the big announcement. let’s just wait and see for now.
