Jaguar XJ and unlocked BlackBerry will be integrating, according to an announcement that was made at the BlackBerry World 2011. They will be showing off their brand new XJ line of sedans that have a prototype in them that allows for the car to connect with RIM technology and allows for their car to be integrated with their mobile devices. Communication throughout the device will be handed by a VNC, and users will be able to access their apps as well as make calls from inside their vehicle.
They will also be able to control certain aspects of the car from the touch screen, including the direction that the mirrors are facing as well as receive traffic information and GPS services that could help them to more quickly get from point A to point B. The phone will be able to be controlled from the center stack of the line of sedans, and the company has stated that they will be blocking apps that could potentially be distracting while someone is driving. This is good news, because we do not want to have to worry about people playing with mobile apps while they are driving and not paying attention to the road.
This is a move that was met with applause from the audience, and could shape the way that mobile technology and vehicles integrate in the future. This is an enticing offering, but only if you are looking for a Jaguar.
In the future, look for integration with other types of vehicles to become more standard. While there are not many options available at the moment, integration is something that has routinely been looked at throughout the mobile industry as a logical next step for smart device and car manufacturing companies. Look for more news on this subject to be made available in the near future.
