The QNX Bentley Demo Onstage at BlackBerry Live [VIDEO]


BlackBerry Live has seen some amazing demos and if you ask me, rolling a Bentley out on to the stage during the BlackBerry Live 2013 keynote definitely takes the cake. The car is an iconic symbol of passion and power; a car that only the truly ambitious covet. The task of embedding it with the latest mobile computing technology is quite ambitious as well.

Mark Rigley, of QNX, and Thorsten Heins showed off the power of the BlackBerry platform with a the first BBM Video call from a phone to a car. On the line was none other than Vivek Bhardwaj who was jokingly taking a vacation, while at BlackBerry Live. Check out that video conference and the gorgeous QNX Bentley in the video above.

In a true demonstration of the power of mobile computing, they were able to update software on the vehicle wirelessly via a BlackBerry 10 smartphone. What do you think about the QNX Bentley? Are you excited for the future of mobile computing?
