The world'€™s largest in-car touchscreen?

Is this the world'€™s largest touch-screen in a car? The company behind it believes so. It'€™s the work of QNX, a software firm owned by RIM, the makers of Blackberry smartphones.

Displayed at CES in a Bentley Continental GTC and developed with the support of the luxury British brand, it's a whopping 17-inch HD screen and is slightly curved to add an extra hi-tech feel. It replaces the car'€™s entire centre console of buttons and switches, and functionality is controlled via a ring dial near the base.

The default display inside the ring is Bentley's famous Breitling analogue clock, but it'€™s part of the screen and changes to reflect user inputs. A tiny camera means the whole thing can also be used for video conferences. The system is only a concept and there are no plans for production as yet.
