Of all the features of the Tesla Model S, the 17-inch touchscreen has us frothing at the mouth. And according to Elon Musk, Tesla will allow third-party developers to create apps for their all-electric sedan.

Speaking at the Cleantech Forum in San Francisco, Musk said, "We want people to develop car-specific applications," with Tesla's CEO specifically citing that text-to-speech technology is key to reducing distracted driving.

We'll be sitting down with several Model S engineers tomorrow and plan to ask what kind of apps the automaker will have pre-installed in their new EV, what they're looking for from devs and when an SDK could be available. Expect a follow-up soon.

      That thing will be too bright at night. I hope they have an light sensitivity auto adjustment or a really high end LCD that provides superior black levels in the dark. Otherwise, this huge screen will be like driving at night with a computer/TV monitor sitting next to you.
