iPhone electric scooter might tempt texters

Like many people who are getting sick of cars, my friend ditched his Saab for a sky-colored Vespa. It doesn’t quite live up to its nickname of Blue Thunder, but it’s a hassle-free, old-school ride that costs very few shekels at the pump.

Terra Motors, the Tokyo startup that recently launched an electric tuk-tuk, has unveiled something even more appealing: an electric scooter with an iPhone dock.

The A4000i can link to your phone and display data on power consumption, remaining battery charge, average speed, and mileage, as well as navigation information via an app.

The company is calling it the first bike of its kind to enter mass production, and it plans to start turning them out at a factory in Vietnam in December.
