At the 2010 Paris Motor Show later this month, BMW will showcase a globally unique technology for integrating BlackBerry smartphones in the car, which among other things allows the display of emails including the text-to-speech function.

BMW also upgraded its Bluetooth connectivity technology for the Apple iOS 4 operating system and allows the new Apple iPhone 4 to be integrated, among other devices. Also new is the iPod Out function, which optimizes the operation of various Apple music players in the vehicle. BMW is also adding a WiFi hotspot function that provides rear-seat passengers using a notebook or Apple iPad with wireless internet access.
