And now the market has to weigh whether this is merely another competitor available, or everything Blackberry and iPhone aren't.
Formula One fever is in the air as Singapore prepares to host the fist ever F1 night race this weekend. And for those unable to watch the race, the simulated experience may be quite the stimulating alternative.
