Open Standards and Product Differentiation

May 22, 2013 // By Andrew Poliak, QNX
It is sometimes assumed, erroneously, that basing a product on open standards and delivering a distinct user experience are mutually exclusive options. Quite the opposite. HTML5, for example, offers all the benefits of a widely supported standard, including a large community of developers and the ability to integrate in-car infotainment systems with virtually all smartphones and tablets. But it also allows automakers to control look-and-feel, modality of control, and end-user personalization.
