Check out this cool 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook custom car mount by CrackBerry member Mark PPG!

We have no shortage of great car kits and mounts in the CrackBerry store, but sometimes that's simply not enoughc. Take for example CrackBerry member Mark PPG. He was inspired after watching the video of the QNX Jeep and set out to complete a similar project on his car, modifying the dash a bit so he has a home for his 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook. By relocating the existing car stereo into the space previously occupied by the air vents and altering the stock radio trim, and building custom brackets to hold the PlayBook, Mark now has the perfect setup for his car. The mount tilts out so that the tablet can be inserted/removed and so that he can plug in an audio jack to play music through the car stereo. He says future plans may include a BlackBerry Music Gateway and a power source for the PlayBook.

Mark currently has just a few applications installed on the PlayBook, including a music player and a couple of navigation apps. He's looking for more so if you have any suggestions that you think would be great on a 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook in a car mount, feel free to leave them in the comments or in the forums at the link below.

Interested in mounting your BlackBerry PlayBook in your vehicle, but not comfortable making alterations like this to your dash? Head on over to ShopCrackBerry and check out the car kits and mounts; you're sure to find something that will suit your needs.

How about a Dell Voice app for the PlayBook?

I Love the mount and the car. I too have a purple car (3000gt Vr4 640hp). Think Im going to to do something like this. I really wish They would release some of the QNX Car apps to the Playbook. The fact that they already have speakerphone, ODB interface, headsup display and a bunch of other apps that we could be using on the playbook drives me nutz.

I've seen thus done with another tablet, but it's nice to see it done with a PB. Figure out a way to mass produce this, even if it's for one vehicle to start, and you'll make wheelbarrows of loot.

Awesome! i was just talking to my wife about installing a mount in my car for the playbook. I was thinking of attaching it to the visor so i could easily open and close it.
