We covered an article yesterday saying how laggy the MyFord Touch system was in the new 2011 Ford Edge Sport. It seems that some people were annoyed about how they have to wait at least 2 seconds before their inputted command is executed.
Thankfully the likes of QNX feels the same way and have decided to fit out a Toyota Prius with a Blackberry OS 6 touchscreen interface. You have to ask why Apple does not do the same? I do not want to sound like an Apple fan here, but they have one of the best touchscreen interfaces on the market.
It would be great to see how Apple could incorporate iOS 4.2 into one of the latest vehicles, not sure what model they would choose though? Anyway, that’s enough of that, back to the BlackBerry OS 6.
According to CrackBerry, the system makes use of both touch and non-touch. This means that you cannot only use the touchscreen display in the center of the dash, but also buttons on the steering wheel as well. You can see in the video below that the best display has not been used, as things look a little blurry. However, inputs seem to be quicker than Microsoft’s on the Ford Edge Sport.
