Just saw an article on CNN that says Ford has dumped Microsoft and will use Blackberry technology in the vehicles, though it will still be branded "Sync 3".

On of the improvements Ford promises is better integration of iPhones with Fords. You should be able to use Siri, too. Microsoft's software didn't always play nice with iPhones.
