    Have you ever thought it would be cool to have an Android Tablet built-in to your car? That idea is one-step closer to reality thanks to Saab Automobile. Saab shared today that their newest vehicles will soon come with Android operating systems powering their 'IQon' "infotainment system". With an 8-inch touchscreen it will primarily be used for audio, video and GPS, but it will also be able to monitor your car's on-board computer and will be upgradeable, customizable and allow you to download apps.
