The latest Friday weekly build of Opera 10 now includes Opera Turbo. Could this mean that they are going to ship Final version with it already integrated?

As the technologies advance, car maker Ford decided to include Opera Browser into their new F-150, Super Duty, E-Series and Transit Connect trucks and vans to attract more buyers.
“Opera’s vision has always been about giving people access to the full Web anytime, anywhere,” explains Rod Hamlin, Senior Vice President Americas for Opera Software. “No example showcases this better than delivering a fast, feature-rich Web browser to a vehicle. This solution will allow Ford truck and van owners to maintain a virtual work environment with access to all of the important files, information and applications they need on a daily basis.”
