Nexus One car kit spotted in Google promo vid

When you consider that the Nexus One is preloaded with a very robust turn-by-turn navigation app, a car dock seems like the next logical step. However, Google's been fairly tight-lipped with the details surrounding it.

We knew that a Nexus One car dock was coming. Google has already released a slick-looking desktop dock. And when you consider that the Nexus One is preloaded with a very robust turn-by-turn navigation app with a dedicated in-car interface, a car dock seems like the next logical step. However, Google's been fairly tight-lipped with the details surrounding it.

So, we were surprised to see what appears to be the actual Nexus One car dock pop up at the one-minute mark in the latest in a series of Nexus One promotional videos from Google. It's not a particularly good shot, but it's the best look we've gotten so far at what appears to be the real deal.
