Volkswagen to Show AV-equipped Eos at CeBit

Volkswagen announced it was showing off a new automotive AV study, in the form of its new Eos convertible, at the CeBIT exhibition in Hanover, Germany this week. The study, a joint project with Microsoft, employs a car PC from inperio Systems — powered by a 650 MHz Intel Celeron Processor — with 256 MB of RAM and a 20GB hard drive, linked to seven-inch headrest monitors. Wireless LAN of some form or another provide online connectivity for a full range of digital media functions (navigation, games, DVD, web browsing, IM, blogging from somewhere other than one's parents' basement, er, etc.)
