Smartphone connectivity solutions clean up at CES

If you follow this blog, you know how much I like to blab about the growing integration between cars and smartphones. Well, just to show you that I'm not totally obsessed with this theme, here's something completely different: integration between smartphones and dishwashers!

Seriously, I just came across a Techmeme article on Kenmore's upcoming line of smartphone-savvy washers, dryers, stoves, and refrigerators, which were showcased at CES. The appliances look pretty cool, but won't be available until 2012. So don't get too excited (yet) about using your BlackBerry to check whether the roast is done.

By the way, Kenmore has its own blog site, called that's genius. I just dropped by and discovered that one of the bloggers, C. C. Chapman, took this video of the QNX-powered BlackBerry Playbook while visiting CES. Check it out:
