We take a look at the first pictures of TomTom's long-awaited iPhone GPS application
TomTom for iPhone consists of two parts — the TomTom for iPhone software app, which will be downloadable from the iPhone store, and TomTom's dedicated iPhone cradle, providing a safe mounting system in the car. It is not yet confirmed whether the TomTom for iPhone app will work without the cradle.

  • TomTom for iPhone consists of two parts — the TomTom for iPhone software app, which will be downloadable from the iPhone store, and TomTom's dedicated iPhone cradle, providing a safe mounting system in the car. It is not yet confirmed whether the TomTom for iPhone app will work without the cradle.
  • The TomTom for iPhone app will work with both the existing [[artnid:252856|iPhone 3G]] and the newly launched [[artnid:308281|iPhone 3GS]].
  • The TomTom for iPhone software will appear on the iPhone in the same way as a regular app. The software will be a downscaled version of TomTom's regular GPS software, optimised specifically for the iPhone's 3.5in display. TomTom has not announced pricing or Australian availability, but it is expected to release the app and cradle by the end of 2009.
  • The TomTom for iPhone cradle uses TomTom's EasyPort mount system, which is also featured with the company’s latest dedicated portable GPS unit, the [[artnid:305019|TomTom ONE 140 IQ Routes Edition]]. The mount also allows users to charge the iPhone in the car when it's mounted in the cradle.

Last week, Sygic announced the first turn-by-turn navigation app for the iPhone, while Navigon has also unveiled its plans for an iPhone application due for release before the end of the year. But the big news is from TomTom, with the navigation giant announcing a TomTom for iPhone app — due for release in the coming months. iPhone owners have been waiting a long time for fully fledged GPS and thankfully, full turn-by-turn navigation has just arrived.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
