A new agreement has been forged between TomTom and Samsung that will bring the Wave 3 “Bada” smartphone access to the company’s GPS-related services.
Charles Cautley, Managing Director of TomTom Automotive and Licensing had the following to say about the new agreement:
Signing the deal with Samsung highlights TomTom’s ability to deliver the map and enhanced content needed to enable the location based services for wireless users. TomTom is excited to collaborate with the global leader in the smartphone market.
So what kind of features does the new agreement bring to the table? Here is a breakdown:
