Read Emails In-Car with BMW, BlackBerry, and Bluetooth [video]


A few years ago, I was opining that in-car technology was pitiful and useless — mostly because I had no way to connect my iPod to a car stereo — before the days of AUX-in and USB connections BMW and BlackBerry seem to have waded into the next generation of in-car apps with their latest Bluetooth update that allows drivers to have emails read aloud via the car stereo and iDrive.

Since I now think that anything opposed to the art of driving should be banned (even cupholders), this trend of allowing drivers to access email while behind the wheel makes me sick.

That said, if you're so inclined, the feature will be rolled out first on the BlackBerry Pearl 3G, but will soon extend to all devices running the BlackBerry 6 OS.

See the video at the link below.

It should only work while the car is not moving or on the back seat displays only when it is.
