Parrot Shows Off Its Latest Android Automotive Offerings [CES 2012]
We’re going to see a lot of automotive electronics at CES this year, and we fully expect Android to be running on a few of these next gen infotainment systems. Parrot, who isn’t a stranger to Android powered automotive electronics, had a few of their latest on display. Their lineup of Android infotainment systems included the compact Asteroid CK, a 3.2-inch device that can be mounted to your windshield or dashboard; the Asteroid NAV, with a 5-inch display; and the Asteroid 2DIN, a 6.2″ in-dash multitouch-capable infotainment system.
Parrot’s next generation of Android automotive electronics all run on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), a huge step forward from their previous Android 1.6 (Donut) products. They allow you to make hands-free calls, listen to music, use apps, and navigate — all while keeping your hands on the wheel, thanks to their wireless remote control. No pricing has been announced on Parrot’s latest offerings but we have a couple shots of these units for you courtesy of The Verge.
