Android on your phone? Of course it is a very common thing. Android in the tablet PC? It is also commonplace. But, what about Android in your car? Apparently, this is a new thing and the biggest breakthrough.
The breakthrough was made by one of the companies engaged in electronics for the automotive industry from Japan, Clarion. The company established in 1940, is making a special new stereo system for cars that they named “Mirage”. What’s so special? As mentioned at the beginning, Mirage has been reinforced by Android.

In addition to having the advantage that Android has been strengthened, Clarion Mirage has come standard features. These features, among others, for the SD card slot, USB port, and Bluetooth. However, there is something a little strange because you will not be able to listen to songs through your CD collection. Why? Since the Clarion Mirage is not equipped with a CD player.
Maybe it is not a big problem, because if you see the development of technology at this time. Japanese company, most likely have seen that most of the consumers prefer to use their smartphone or MP3 player to play music, rather than carrying their collection disc fragments.
Although Clarion Mirage already been installed using the Android, does not make it illegal for owners of Apple gadgets.
