Saab reveals IQon, the first Android infotainment system

Saab has announced the first Android-based, in-dash "infotainment" system for a car.

Called 'IQon,' the platform was demoed in a Saab Phoenix concept car at the 2011 Geneva motor show.

The Wi-Fi enabled, 8-inch touch screen lets drivers access thousands of Android apps. Apart from the usual productivity apps, like e-mail, navigation, entertainment, and music streaming, drivers can expect to see more auto-specific apps; for example, an app that controls your car's air-conditioner, one reviewer suggested. Furthermore the platform has built-in remote communication to and from Saab dealerships, which could be useful for carrying out diagnostics and uploading vehicle data.
