Where is TomTom for iPhone?

What is going on? Dutch company TomTom offers navigation software that belongs to the most popular in the world and certainly most popular in Europe. They make not only software for smartphones but also plenty of navigation devices too and also plenty of accessories (like the holder for iPhone pictured above).

However until now, still TomTom for iPhone has not been released, despite the fact that it has been officially announced! Why?

Toshiba TG01 spreading viruses

image O2 customers in Germany have been somewhat unlucky with the purchase of their Toshiba TG01 units.

The unit which took months to actually begin shipping has actually shipped with a virus installed.  Whilst the number of devices affected to date is very few, customers in Germany have been urged to contact customer services and all other shipments have been halted.

No news if this is affecting UK units, however it is not a great start for Toshiba.

Samsung JET S8000 unboxing video

Samsung seem to be releasing a large number of handsets at the moment from the Omnia range. The Omnia HD and Omnia II are among the more eagerly awaited models out there and we should be getting our hands on them to review in due course.

This week we received the Samsung JET S8000 to review and initial impression are that this is a decent looking handset with a fabulous AMOLED display. There’s also an 800MHz processor to keep things moving along at a fair old clip and the 5MP camera is pretty good too!
