BlackBerry PlayBook also plays an important role in the customization of the vehicle, transforming the exterior screen and controlling useful messages or information and can also be used as a mobile advertising board, either while parked or on the move. Come the weekend, the vehicle transforms itself into a family vehicle, with a comfortable passenger seat and, in the rear, a big bench seat. Children can watch a film or play games on the touch-sensitive pad which slides out from the back of the driver’s seat. They can even draw on a special slate integrated into the sliding door.
