    Who misses the famous BlackBerry trackpad button we saw on so many devices..Torch9810, Bold9900 and of course The Classic! The other get in to drive the new Mercedes Class B ! And wow! Identical! 2 trackspads on the steering wheel left and right. They work so great to access all car functions, options, nav, etc. Wonder if BlackBerry and QNX are behind this? Damn it felt so nice!
    Took this shot with my KEY2.

    Looks nice, but nothing can beat Mazda's click-dial IMHO

    I think there is / was some kind of partnership between BlackBerry and Mercedes as at some point their logo was all over Mercedes F1 cars and driver race suits.

    So when can we expect a full QWERTY on the steering wheel?

    They sponsored the Formula 1 team.

    Sidenote: Those trackpads are used in a ton of things. Even the old HTC G2 had one. BlackBerry holds no claim to them, that's for sure.

    That's quite a collection of controls for one side of a steering wheel. With an equal number on the other side, I sure hope most of them don't function when the vehicle is in motion.

    They all function perfectly and of course in motion it's a steering wheel! LOL! ... and with no need to look at steering wheel.
