Car Accessories: Jensen NVX3000PC Car PC

1:54 /

Jensen helps make the in-dash PC more mainstream, though it's still a pricey proposition.

[ music ] ^M00:00:04 [ background music ] >> Okay, so you get a lot of visionaries these days saying tomorrow, the computer is in the car, and you think great, I'm gonna have a mid-tower case on my dashboard, or a laptop balancing on the passenger seat, not cool. A lot of companies though are working on what the form factor would be. Here's an example from Jensen, the audio vox company. They're showing off what they call the NVX3000 PC. First of all you see I've got my wireless browser up here, here's IE, checking one of my favorite websites. The interface to this is done largely via touch screen and stylus and virtual keyboard. So if I bring that up, there's my keyboard. There is no physical keyboard like you'd see on an ultra-mobile PC. So this is tending toward a navigation device in that sense. All right, now let's take a look at the interface that brings it more into the car realm. They have what they call the Jensen space. That interface is much cleaner, and it gives you the big ones. So you've got navigation, let's check that out. And there's a good large size screen, seven inches you can see, touch screen, big icons, very car, here's audio. You can store a whole bunch of media on here because it has a thirty gig hard drive, of which most is free and available for you to put your media on. Now let's move to the last mode, is this your only computer. Kind of a reach with a one gigahertz processor, but as you can see, I can undock this guy, and there's the form factor. Kind of like a portable DVD player. The other specs include a couple of USB ports, it also has a Serf [assumed spelling] three GPS radio, and you've got a wireless remote control. That certainly brings up the home entertainment idea. Plus there's an expansion dock at your desktop to hook this up to monitor, keyboard, mouse, and wired Ethernet. This is the NVX3000 PC. It's one idea for the in-car PC, and where it meets the nav device. It's from Jensen, fifteen hundred dollars is the MSRP, and it's available now.
