Interesting story on CNET this morning about how Ford has put a full fledged Windows PC into their Ford F-Series pick up trucks. Ford is using a Stargate Mobile built tablet running Windows XP Tablet PC edition. The most interesting part of the story is that it’s not a prototype or a concept. It’ll be available to F-Series owners starting next year.
Tablet PC has some speech recognition built into it; it’s the predecessor to the great work we’ve been doing for Vista for the past couple years.
It’ll be fun to walk into a Ford dealership next year and check out speech in the car.
