Dutch mapping and navigation firm TomTom has announced its continued partnership with Apple, as the two companies have agreed to renew their contract. TomTom has become very valuable to Apple and their iOS devices since 2012, when the Cupertino company launched its own maps application, ending a reliance on Google and their data. Most of Apple's map data for North America and Europe comes from TomTom, and this has allowed Apple to develop its own street-level navigation features.

TomTom's PND app for the iPhone 3G and 3GS may already be splitting opinion among early reviewers, but we're yet to see how the company's dedicated car-kit fares.  Even if you pick one up and find you're less than enamored with the TomTom app, the company has confirmed to Mac4Ever that not only does the mount have an integrated GPS receiver but that it is compatible with other PND apps.  They've also revealed that the iPod touch will work in the car-kit just like the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

iPhone 3G hands-on review roundup

Several hands-on iPhone 3G reports from after the WWDC 2008 Keynote are out, and as you might expect they're all saying pretty much the same thing.
