Microsoft Demos Concept for Windows in the Car [Video]

Posted April 5, 2014 at 8:00pm by iClarified · 18157 views
Microsoft demoed a concept for Windows in the Car at its developer conference this week.

Similar to CarPlay, Microsoft is working on a brought-in device approach to in-vehicle-infotainment systems. Users will be able to connect their smartphone to the car and view a projection of the device on the vehicle's display via the Mirrorlink standard.

On the start page you can see the current speed limit for the road you're on, large buttons for common tasks (tiles), mute, view, search and settings buttons, as well as tabs, time, temperature, cell signal and your device's battery life across the top. You can pin common tasks to the start page and swipe between pages.

Tapping the additional tabs at the top provides access to the interfaces for Maps, Phone, Music, and HVAC.

Check out the demo below and please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Lol, the average age of the commenters here must be less than 12.. Saying things like Microjunk, Shamesung.. Come on guys, this isn't kindergarten, it is a technology site and everybody is welcome to share their opinion and brand preference, but please, don't be childish.

The irony because you talk like a pansy. Plus others describe apple with 2 extra letters, thats why it's right to use harsh words back.

No one's childish here. Bu if you seriously think that, you must really be mature, and if you can't handle that, get off the site. No one needs to be babysat here, especially by YOU.

you may laugh but i saw new insurance plans because of what these idiots will try to sell us in near future. CarPlay in your next car bumps you premium about 3 times, while windows version almost 10times what you pay now
