Car computer runs Ubuntu 10.10, offers GPS and HSDPA

Vic has begun selling an Ubuntu Linux-based, double-DIN car computer with GPS and 3G HSDPA for approximately $410. Based on an Intel Celeron M processor with 2GB of DDR2 memory, the NaviSurfer II Ubu-3G offers a 250GB hard disk drive, a seven-inch, 800 x 480 touchscreen, and extensive connectivity including multiple camera inputs, says the company.

The NaviSurfer II Ubu-3G appears to be the first Linux model offered in Vic’s line of Windows XP-based NaviSurfer II car computers, such as the Single-DIN NaviSurfer II announced in early 2008. Like other NaviSurfer II computers, the larger new Ubu-3G model, which fits in double-DIN stereo bays, is hardly state-of-the-art, featuring a somewhat dated 1.3GHz Intel Celeron M processor.
