the vision i see is an in dash dock station. you can pick it up from your coffee table where it has been synching the latest news, traffic reports, music collection, etc... then you slam it into your car dock and go. the car dock provides power, GPS, sound in/out, possibly data connectivity. maybe it even gets car diagnostic info. as you're driving it switches to some drive friendly UI state for safety. large touch screen menus and/or speech control. the apps that can run in this mode have to go through some certification for safety. it gives you the standard stuff : driving directions, news, entertainment, hands free calling, etc... when you get to your destination, you just undock it and go.
