CrackBerry posts first peek at OnStar RemoteLink for BlackBerry PlayBook

Paul Leroux
This morning at CES, met up with QNX's Andrew Poliak for a walkthrough of the new OnStar RemoteLink app for the BlackBerry PlayBook.

If you aren't familiar with RemoteLink, it provides a very cool and powerful connection to OnStar-equipped vehicles. From the convenience of your tablet or phone, you can access gas mileage, tire pressure, and other information in real time; you can even remotely start your vehicle and unlock its doors.

Cooler yet, the new version running on the PlayBook boasts a user interface built entirely in HTML5. But enough blather from me. Roll the tape...

Did you know? QNX is the core OS for the PlayBook, but it's also the OS for OnStar and OnStar FMW.
