QNX Nominated Finalistes for Telematics Awards

Today Telematics Update announced the thirty finalists for the Telematics Awards 2004 to be held during the Telematics Detroit Conference and Exhibition on May 25-26. QNX is nominated in the Best Technology category. After an overwhelming response in nominations for the second international Telematics Awards, the independent panel of judges had the difficult task of narrowing down each category to five finalists. ""The Telematics Update Awards program has really gained in popularity as reflected in the vast number of nominees for this year's award program,"" said Phil Magney, chairman of the Awards Judging Panel and Principal Analyst of Telematics Research Group. ""Hundreds of nominees have been submitted this year ranging from small start-ups to large multinational brands. These companies represent the future of telematics with some very compelling solutions.""
