IOPS In-Car PC

IOPS today slipped out information about its first in-car PC. Currently without a name, the two-slot PC completely replaces a vehicle's entertaintment system. A slide-out 7-inch touchscreen controls GPS mapping, music and video hosted on the PC itself. Owners can also pair the PC with a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard for finer control.

The true advantage, however, is its usefulness for wireless data, according to the company. Drivers can tune in live digital TV from T-DMB stations and don't need a separate tuner for radio; HSDPA mobile Internet is also available for browsing the Web or checking e-mail from the car simply by dropping into the hidden Windows interface. Full details will be available by the formal announcement of the PC at this week's CeBIT expo in Germany. [via New Launches]
