PRT: A NEW CAR STEREO IN YOUR POCKET

Photobucket

This week on Product Review Tuesdays, we bring you the new car stereo that turns your iPhone into a head unit: the Devium. What started out as a Kickstarter project, some dude named Paul came up with the idea to turn what is, in actuality, a better navigation system, stereo interface, phone and playlist player into an actual dashboard faceplate. Good idea.

Now, Paul is still working on the release date, but we hear that his new “Dash” should be available by July. And from what we understand, he’ll not only be offering a unit to accommodate the iPhone, but also some other brands as well. We’re guessing that you Blackberry folks are shit-outta-luck, though.

The whole shootin’ match is made up of two parts: the faceplate and the box that goes into the dash and hooks up to your existing stereo system. The faceplate is interchangeable and, apparently, Paul is making some provisions for iPhones that wear cases (Hey, Paul–get in touch with Eric over at Element Case and get hooked up) so they won’t have to be removed every time one gets into one’s car and wants to plug in.

Take a look at Devium’s site for more info on the Dash (here) and get your order placed. We’re wondering how this thing works with the steering wheel controls, though…
