Parrot RK8200 Head Unit Looks Too Much Like a Cellphone


All right, I get it. People like to talk on the phone in the car. This is an established behavior that I have to deal with, but the RK8200 from Parrot is just a bit too much. This after-market head unit looks like a cellphone. The green and red buttons to the 12 button dialpad and even the LCD screen just scream CELLPHONE!

The device's cellphone envy knows no bounds. Naturally, it includes Bluetooth so your cellphone can link up with it and complete the union. The RK8200 will be available in March for $280. For that modest outlay, you also get a face that folds down to uncover a hidden compartment for gadgets and other stuff, like sandwiches and—YES!—cellphones. [CrunchGear]
