Saab PhoeniX Concept Car Runs “IQon” Android in Dash System [VIDEO]

Saab was recently at the International Motor Show in Geneva where they demonstrated a concept car called the PhoeniX.  We’re interested in this car, not because it turns the sexy up to 11, but because it has Android in the dashboard.  The system is called IQon and it’s billed as an ” infotainment concept” which promises to blend online services, multimedia, and of course, vehicle applications.  We’re potentially looking at the ability to stream music from a cloud-based system, pulling up automobile diagnostics, and whatever else you can imagine on an 8-inch screen.  Click through to the rest of the story to see a video demonstration and be sure to read the Saab press release for all the details.
