RealVNC teams up with Sony to bring Android apps to the dashboard

Engadget:  Sony and RealVNC have announced a partnership that aims to liberate your smartphone’s applications and content, bringing the wares to your car’s dashboard. Once a VNC-enabled vehicle and Android handset are paired, users can access and manipulate the device’s applications, music library and stream web content directly to the car’s infotainment system. In order to preserve public safety, and meet “regulatory requirements,” the system can detect vehicle velocity and will revoke the proverbial keys to your mobile kingdom while you’re in motion. The RealVNC code will be bundled with “all new 2012 Xperia handsets” and the accompanying VNC Automotive software has — according to the press release, anyway — “been widely adopted by the automotive industry.” What’s more, the VNC goodies will allow Sony support specialists to troubleshoot your Xperia handset remotely, should you request such assistance. Mosey on past the break for a look at the full announcement.
