Three Nokia N800 Internet Tablets in one car

It may not be as eye-catching as a single Sony Vaio UX fixed into a headrest, but three Nokia N800 Internet Tablets mounted into a single car is certainly something to look at.

Spotted at DigitalLife yesterday, this Ford Mustang convertible featured integrated wi-fi and had passed off its audio duties to the backseat, where one (or both) of the headrest-mounted handtops was controlling and streaming the music.

What do you say, ThoughtFix? A new project?

    From owning a fastback version, I can tell that the car in question is a 2005+ Ford Mustang convertible. I’m not sure why they thought to install N800s for the back seat passengers. There isn’t too much room back there!

    To me this could also be a fake. At least the devices in the backseat look kind of odd. The upper edges don’t quite fit and if you look at the right one, you see that it doesn’t follow the edge of the backrest.
    The more I look at it the more obvious it seem to tme that this is a fake picture. Especially if you make the picture bigger and look at the headrests…

  • Thanks, Scott! I’ve just updated the post with the info. :-)

    @ Dominus: It does look a bit fake, but it’s 100% real. The Boy Genius Report just posted a bunch of additional pictures today. They also say the wi-fi is coming from an onboard Nokia N95.

    Yeah, I have to admit I was wrong :)
    Looking at the other pictures I can see now why I thought it was fake, the headrests are done very badly :)

  • My husband agrees with you completely and is actually still having a hard time believing the photo is real. He hasn’t looked at the BGR pics yet, but he thought the one above looked badly photoshopped.

    Oh, and you’re right. Those headrests are terrible!
