I would assume so. Audi MMI uses QNXPhones:
Nokia 5110>Nokia 3360>Siemens C56>Moto RAZR>LG Chocolate>Pearl 8100>Bold 9000 > Bold 9900 >Z10 > Aristo
16GB Playbook> Playbook 32GB + Playbook 16GB > ???

Harman (original owners of QNX) demoed their new auto system running on Android! So, it seems like QNX is going to see a lot of competition!

I have been following QNX at CES. It's worth taking a look at their tweets. There was a round table yesterday about future infotainment and related systems such as autonomous driving. It seems there is growing concern about Android reliability for in car systems and some talk about the US government taking an increasingly dim view of distracted driving. There seems to be a growing divide been what Android/Google/consumers might want and governments who demand safety first. And don't forget that unlike phones, cars and drivers are heavily regulated by government. So you can bet if government thinks it's unsafe, it's not going to happen.

That said, it's a good idea to keep an eye on competition. Specially, somebody backed by as formidable as Google. RIM dropped the ball once already (when iPhone and Android launched, they underestimated them) and RIM is still recovering! Let's not repeat that.

Don't really thin BB dropped the ball, they saw the potential in QNX and in less than 2. years have developed a brand new OS. Sure it didn't time well with market conditions but they have actually moved pretty fast.

Point is - let's not underestimate the competition. If Harman + Android is doing something for automobiles, let's keep an eye on it and ensure (hope) RIM out-does them.

You guys are missing the largest piece of the puzzle. RIM owns this end to end, infrastructure, QNX embedded systems, tablets, phones, and a way to manage it all. No one else comes close to this at this time. Just because you layer Android on top doesnt change that. RIM also has an SDK available to take their HTML5 apps and push them cross platform, not just an app that "ties in" to the car, but the SAME application in your car, on your phone, and on your tablet. Also being able to use BES 10, or a similar consumer system, to push updates to your car, manage it securely, perhaps track a stolen vehicle, etc.~S_A

Agree with you on RIM's strengths. Just need to make sure that RIM continues to be a leader in that area.
