CES 2012: Pioneer AppRadio 2 adds Android support

1:38 /

The most interesting new trick in this second-generation hardware's bag is Pioneer's announcement of support for Android devices.

What's up everybody? This is Antuan Goodwin with CNET.com. I'm on the floor of CES 2012 in Pioneer's booth. I'm taking a look at the AppRadio 2. Now what Pioneer has done is they've taken the AppRadio that they debuted last year with the iPhone app integration... This one works with iPhone 4 and iPhone S and they made it a little bit better. Those small changes add up to well pretty big new device. It got a bigger 7 inch capacitive touchscreen that's multi-touch. So when you're on your Google Maps you can actually pinch and zoom and swipe and scroll that sort of thing... They've also added in this generation Android connectivity. So if you have an Android phone that has a micro HDMI or an MLT connection... then you can basically... connect to the Android phone and take control of it right here in the interface as well. So we've got apps like Pandora and (Ways?) for navigation that you'll be able to use on the Android device. In addition to the apps that they mentioned last year... with the iPhone 4S. We've also got more audio outputs in the back which should make this a more compelling device for users who wanna build systems with multiple amps... There's also a dedicated rear view camera input. So if you wanna add backup camera you can do all of that right here. It's a (mech?) free device. So it doesn't have an optical drive. You can't play CDs or DVDs in here but if you really wanna do that, they've added an advanced app mode to their navigation and DVD receiver. So if you wanna get the best of both worlds you can also take a look at one of those devices right here. I'm Antuan Goodwin. I'm on the floor of CES 2012. This is the Pioneer AppRadio and I think it's pretty cool.
