    BMW has showcased its plans for iPad OEM accessories at the Paris motorshow, signalling that the device is set to supplant the traditional car-based DVD unit with flip down screen as the future of in-car entertainment. The iPad dock rotates from horizontal to vertical and looks to be seamlessly integrated with the front passenger headrest in the photos. Whether it is capable of charging the device on the go is unclear at this stage.
    The second piece of Apple-centric BMW OEM accessory on display at the Paris show is an iPhone dock that supports a BMW Link app, which integrates the device with the car's audio, Bluetooth phone, and satellite navigation systems.

    It appears to be another sign that the iPad has begun to attain a similar status to the iPhone as a halo product in the Apple product range. Expect other manufacturers to follow suit with similar solutions, especially with mobile Wi-Fi hotspot integration steadily becoming a feature of new cars hitting the market. [via Gizmodo]
