BenQ, the electronics producer, is working on PC systems for automobiles. The Taiwanese company is researching several products, but nothing is being formally announced. BenQ is taking part of a growing trend in the automotive industry, but we wonder about how competitive they will be against established suppliers. We suspect their products may be aimed at more 'aftermarket' applications, since BenQ is already known for their display products in the consumer space. Computer systems for automobiles are set to experience major growth as navigation systems and mulitmedia make there way into production vehicles. BenQ will undoubtedly be focused on hardware production.The real opportunities are in software design, as software content in automobiles is set to increase substantially over the next few years.
