    Android tablets built into Indian buses



    Lookout dub rolling Escalades and high class airliner planes cause it looks like buses are going to be the new mode of transportation to have integrated screens in their headrests. And not just any screen, but an Android tablet screen! Thatís right, buses in India are now sporting 7″ touch screens that run their own customized Android interface that allows users to login and do the normal things you would do on an Android tablet, such as view maps, watch video, listen to music, or log into your bank account (although I highly discourage the latter). Whatís nice is that itís a free service, and Iíll give you 1 guess how itís all possibleÖ by serving your advertising!
    Still, this is a nice addition to your morning commute should you use the bus, and as long as people donít hack them out of the headrests or hack the system itself, I can see this as a great use of Android in the future for public transportation. Hit the jump to see some additional video footage of it in action.

    Bet I could get an Indian to pull one of these things out of the seat and FedEx it to me for WAY less than $799. Verizon would still probably make me sign up for a data plan.
