The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has been growing in importance for the automotive industry over the years. You can hardly fail to notice that this year, as in previous years, the big automakers vie for floor space and attention with the glut of big screen TVs and other consumer goods. As always, BlacBerry-QNX will be in the North Hall, proudly in the middle of the big automotive OEMs. At CES BlacBerry-QNX has an enviable history of bringing concept cars that rival anything on the show floor, with one important difference – ours are not pure flights of fancy, and we show technologies that will become realities in the near future.We started this trend back in 2010 with an LTE-connected Toyota Prius – 18 months before the first commercial LTE deployment in mid-2011. Working with Alcatel-Lucent to provide the experimental network, we demonstrated Google maps functionality with local search and an embedded Pandora radio app in a car for the first time. Connectivity is standard in many cars today, but in 2010 we demonstrated the future.
TCL drops video teaser of upcoming BlackBerry Mercury ahead of CES 2017…. Good Phones… use real keyboards…
Once Upon a Byte and 8bitchip present you the story of Amiga Vampire FPGA accelerators, as told by Igor Majstorovic – Majsta himself! Majsta visited this year’s BalCCon (Balkan Computer Congress) and in an informal talk at Once Upon a Byte’s Retro Computer Assembly revealed all of the details that he and the Apollo team had to go trough to get a working FPGA accelerator. He also reveals the plans for the upcoming Vampire 1200 accelerator.
While TCL has already committed to telling us more about their BlackBerry plans at CES 2017, that certainly has not stopped the bits and pieces about the BlackBerry ‘Mercury’ from popping up unofficially. The latest comes by way of Roland Quandt, some of which has been floated about before, but some of which is certainly new information, such as a possible launch of the device on Verizon.In a stream of Tweets, Quandt notes the list of model variations for the ‘Mercury’ as well as claiming the device will come with a Snapdragon 625, a rumor floated about for a while now, but one he feels confident enough in confirming.
