Continuum hits the road with German police concept car

Your car dashboard may not be the first (nor safest) place you imagined taking Windows 10 Mobile's Continuum feature, but a concept car for German police does just that.

As shown by Icomedias (via, a concept car on display at the European Police Congress in Berlin shows how Continuum could be used to run necessary police apps on the infotainment system. The setup includes a Lumia 950 XL docked in a Mercedes-Benz E-class, which essentially turns the car's infotainment display into a full PC experience ready to run the apps that the police use regularly (HybridForms, in this case).

It's definitely an interesting concept, and one that could free up space that would otherwise be taken up by additional devices or displays in the car. The big advantage, of course, would be the ability to use one device for taking photos and filling out forms while inside the car and on foot. While this concept may be some time from becoming reality, German police are already using Windows Phones and Surface tablets as part of a pilot program for documenting traffic accidents.
