Uber’s just plunked down a load of cash on the future of self-driving car tech. The company just ordered 100,000 Mercedes S-Class vehicles, according to German business magazine Manager Magazin.
Seen sporting a Cyon badge (LG's Korean phone brand), the LG Maxx LG9400 is powered by Snapdragon and the dashed dreams of anyone hoping it'd be an Android handset instead of another disappointing S-Class phone.
The sliding point where cameraphones and point-and-shoot cameras seems to keep moving towards the latter. The latest hybrid is the 720p, 12-megapixel LG GC990 Louvre, which, at least from the back, actually looks like a camera.
Mercedes has announced plans to implement what they call a Splitview Command display in new S-Class models—a means for the passenger and driver to see different images on the same surface.
