TomTom: “We Cannot Ignore Android”
TomTom, one of the bigger players in the GPS game, recently released their app for the iPhone with a $99 price tag.Â Â According to pocket-lint, they’re hinting at a follow-up Android version of the title.Â It makes sense as the platform offers decent sized touch screens with voice command capability.
We cannot ignore such a successful platform as Android. HTC is an important partner of ours and Android is becoming increasingly important too. – Benoit Simery, senior VP for TomTom onboard mobile
Would you want to shell out $99 up front for an app like TomTom or would you prefer to go the monthly route at $9.99 a la TeleNav?Â What about other options like waze or CoPilot?
One thing is for sure – Android users will have plenty of options to choose from thanks to GPS functionality being built in to many phones.
Thinking Beyond Apps
Garmin Asus will be putting out a GPS device/phone before too long.Â Would it surprise you to see TomTom make a similar move?
