I knew this was definitely coming sooner or later – you will soon be able to read your Blackberry push emails on your BMW’s iDrive. This has nothing to do with Blackberry maker RIM buying the QNX operating system that iDrive is based on. Instead, iDrive is accessing the emails on the Blackberry using the Bluetooth Message Access Profile feature.
You can watch a quick video walkthrough of the system in the video above. iDrive can even read out the text of your email so you can still “listen” to your email while you are driving. So it looks like the next time Auto Bavaria has Celcom Blackberry promotions (they’ve had it before with the Blackberry Storm), it might just be pre-setup to work with your BMW’s iDrive!
