Let your BMW read you your emails from your Blackberry

Get your email read to you while being stuck on Sheikh Zayed Road.


At WES 2010, BMW is showing their upcoming version of the iDrive system which will allow you to use your Blackberry with your BMW in more than just making calls. Still using Bluetooth, the car will be able to connect to your mobile and get all the email on its screen. The email will only show up when the car is stationary for safety purposes- which is a good thing as reading a short text messages can be hazardous while driving so reading an email will surely be much worse.

The best thing is that while you are driving, the car can READ the email out to you which is fantastic. Not only that, but if you have a contact in your BB address book associated with that email, you can very easily call them. Here is a short video that demos the technology.

Believe it or not, but I was actually thinking about something like this a year back and wondered why it wasn’t done before
