BenQ developing PCs for automobiles

Top gear

Taiwanese electronics maker BenQ is hitching a ride on the current bandwagon for car-related PC products.

The company is researching several products to be used in automobiles, but so far has nothing ready to formally announce, according to a BenQ representative.

The fact that more and more new cars are being equipped with a display panel for use with GPS to help drivers find their way around is making it easier to add PC functions to car interiors, the representative said.

At the earliest, the company will announce new products for the automotive sector at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.

CES will have exhibition space set aside for auto-related products, including the Automotive Aftermarket and Digital Car/Telematics sections, devoted to mobile electronic components, navigation devices, software and hardware integrated into vehicle systems, according to the CES website, which can be found here.
