Smart phone has been made in the information important role in the entertainment system for the Tablet PC has been widely used in automotive, paving the way. In addition to the inherent connectivity, smart phone with integrated GPS and media player and other functions, combined with the popularity and portability, as the preferred platform for automotive infotainment. Therefore, IHS company that smart phone in the car of the importance of not weakening.
However, the smart phone in the car, there is a major disadvantage, that is, its size is too small, not suitable for a long time and view the contents of consumer media. In the car, the driver and passengers are usually passive acceptance of data, means that they absorb and consumer entertainment and media, rather than create content.
