Ford Electric E-Bike concept utilizes a Samsung Galaxy S II

Ford just showed off their E-Bike Concept in Frankfurt, Germany. It can go up to 25 km/h thanks to an electric motor built into the front wheel and 9.2Ah battery, or you can pedal the conventional way.

What is most interesting to me about the E-Bike is that the picture above has a Samsung Galaxy S II on the handlebar. No, it is not some simple dock just to listen to music or give you directions. Sure, you can do those things if you wish, but it can also change suspension modes and monitor battery charge through custom software.

For now it’s just a concept, but a concept we would like to see in production. Hit the beak for one more picture.
