  • Apple's iOS 6 Follows RIM's BlackBerry 10 As TomTom Becomes Primary Maps Provider


    Looks as though the navigational maps provider, TomTom, is becoming the alternative to Google Maps for mobile platforms. Today, tech blog Engadget got a hold of some leaked screenshots showing the iOS 6 developer beta running on an iPhone 4S, and what appears to be TomTom in the details...


    About a month ago we reported a RIM press release with the announcement that they are going to be partnering with TomTom to integrate within the native BlackBerry Traffic application. This would bring access to the most accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date traffic information on the market. Additionally, TomTom maps and location content is used in BlackBerry Maps, and for BlackBerry Locate Services, which gives 3rd party software developers access to the mapping and traffic information for their own apps.

    Now, it looks like Apple is following suit as the leaked screenshots indeed show TomTom as part of their mapping system for iOS 6. The question is, will this be seen as a negative for RIM, or a positive? I for one think it should be a bit flattery for RIM to have iOS 6 follow BlackBerry 10 OS with TomTom integration. However, some may see this as a deterrent for lovers of the TomTom system, to make their way over from iOS 6 to BlackBerry 10. Obviously many factor are at play here as we haven't had a chance to see how much TomTom will play out in each platform, so we will keep you updated as soon as we know more.

    Perhaps now would be a good time for some BlackBerry Traffic on BlackBerry 10 leaks to trickle out. Yes?
