Parrot’s Asteroid Smart, Tablet and Mini Car infotainment systems unveiled
Parrot doesn’t need to keep throwing stuff at us at such irregular intervals. Yet, we take in the awesomeness of all their latest offering, one at a time. We’ll start with the double-DIN Asteroid Smart that comes with a 6.2-inch 800×480 pixels capacitive display, a Texas Instruments 800MHz CPU and is based on Android Gingerbread. Additionally it also packs room to attach a GPS antenna, four USB 2.0 ports, a 3.5mm port, microUSB, Bluetooth 3.0 and SD card slot. Following up is the Asteroid tablet. Likewise, the Asteroid also sports most of the features as the former but has a 5-inch display screen, GPS, Bluetooth, 512MB EAM, 1GB storage, and a SD slot. The Mini is an even more stripped down version that has a 3.2-inch display screen, runs on Android 1.5 and doesn’t pack GPS.
Bringing in the rear is the Asteroid Smart that uses iGo, instead of Google Maps. It allows users to pair two phones simultaneously, thus enabling calls to be made between both phones. It will sell later this month for $599. The Asteroid Tablet and Mini will cost $399 and $299 respectively.
