For phones not to be able to interoperate is seriously bad because it goes against their "raison d'être"

For desktop computer to have different data formats is bad because it make data exchange harder

But why should one bother that softwares highly differ between cars ?
Ergonomy will drive user interfaces, as it does from beginnng of car building
(Not all "prehistorical" cars had steering wheel, bit it was at once obvious what interface device was the best. Anyway, what is beside today's steering wheel greatly differs betwwen cars, it does not matter to drivers)

Just an opinion but Blackberry's QNX started out as a better (faster) Unix and is built expressly for realtime and has been in the game for longest, I think.  So even though it's proprietary it may end up as the Android for cars.  'Course.  My opinion comes from that I programmed a videotex system using QNX around 1985.
