Hmm, a single DIN in-dash car audio player that runs Linux.
Where does that remind me of?

It's a nice design, other than the overly large "PARROT" on the knob. I wonder if the screen looks good in the real world. And using Android as the OS probably makes a lot of sense. It doesn't seem to have any internal storage, though.

Edit: I suppose you could "hard" wire a USB storage device to it, though.

It has an SDHC slot behind the removable front panel by the looks of it. You could store a bit with that.
