T3 Motion EV Uses Samsung Galaxy Tablet

T3 Motion’s three-wheel electric vehicle prototype came to our attention last year when it was still being called the GT3. Soon after that first article, we noted that the car looked to have an iPad feature in its center console.

Earlier this year, the first working model of the car, now called the R3, was released in California. And the company has recently announced that  – perhaps instead of an iPad – the electric vehicle will come equipped with a Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The 3G Galaxy tablet runs off of the Android network  and can be used to check systems diagnostics, watch movies while you drive, provide live traffic updates, annoy drivers while passengers check their email, and will act as the car’s GPS system.

The car is technically classified as a motorcycle, but functions as two-passenger electric vehicle, which the company claims can reach a top speed of 120 miles per hour, although we’ve reported the range somewhere around 70 miles per hour.
