Sony India has announced the launch of XSP-N1BT - a Smartphone Cradle Receiver, which can connect to your smartphone devices and access apps such as music, phone and navigation. The device sits in your car’s dashboard, where it uses your smartphone to interface with your vehicle’s audio system, becoming a head unit that can play music, stream internet radio and make hands-free phone calls.

The smart docking system is able to accommodate smartphones of various sizes and replaces your smartphone’s native interface with Sony’s App Remote 2 when connected. App Remote 2 might not look as stylish as other smartphone interfaces, but it does offer voice control, allowing users to "hear and compose text messages and emails, obtain mapping information, and listen to notifications" without needing to move their hands.

The cradle comes with both USB and Bluetooth connection options. iPhone owners will be able to use the USB connection for quick auto pairing, while Android users will be able to connect using Near Field Communication Bluetooth, a technology that Sony says should allow Android phones pressed against the cradle to automatically connect. The USB cable also functions as a charger, but owners of Sony's newest Xperia smartphones won't need to hook it up: the XSP-N1BT can charge them through an in-built magnetic connector.

The Sony XSP-N1BT Smartphone Cradle Receiver is being offered on sale at all car accessories outlets and leading car showrooms in India with a sticker price of Rs 12,990.
