    The only thing that could be cooler is if the video from the F1 cam showed up on his Berry...


    Otherwise, awesome. Although he was using a model of Lewis Hamilton`s car...grr. Massa for the win =D

    Cool. Is Vodaphone the European carrier for Blackberry? It`s probably all just a publicity thing, and the post on the Youtube video was made up. But enough cynicism. Still awesome.

    I just love his face at the end of the video. Hope he wont get some kind of nerve accident and remain stuck with it for the rest of his life.

    That would be really freaky to see someone like that walking down the street.

    fake or not, why waste the time and $ on this? I mean the toy car came with a controller already didn`t it?

    I`m pretty sure the real car is not being driven by the crackberry though. They whould have to set up remote control system in the car, and once again, why waste the $$?

    i dont think they wasted the "$" on this because $ spent would have been pretty small and the $ they spent turned out to be a good laugh so its $ well spent imo,

    It`d be cool to see a camera on the car linked to the phone, do it proper james bond style.

    Sweet. The F1 car`s full of computers so it`d be quite simple to set stuff like this up. It`s only input->output.

    why do so many people automatically assume that stuff like this is fake? i mean sure there a lot of fake stuff out there... but maybe you should think about it before you scream fake...

    why wouldnt this be possible... i have seen many r/c controlled cars... an f1 racer woiuld be no different than someone hooking up a r/c control to anything else

    Okay, so let`s say there was a receiver in the car controlled by bluetooth in the phone, how long is the range on that bluetooth? Isn`t it usually 30 feet? Also, where are the mechanics involved to control the car? There`d have to be a mechanism to control the steering as well as the throttle and paddles for the transmission. I have to agree with the "fake" crowd.

    IT`S A VIRAL AD!!!! Of course it`s bloody fake. Life size R/C cars have loads of complicated bits and pieces to press pedals/paddles and steer.

    Vodafone (UK suppliers of Blackberry`s and sponsors of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1) are just trying to shift some phones.
