pocketgpsworld.comApple's World Wide Developer Conference got under way in San Francisco today (6PM GMT+1) and news of the new iPhone model is beginning to filter through.

As expected it will sport 3G but most importantly the new model will contain a GPS receiver. Although GPS support had been discovered in the SDK some weeks ago, the possibility that the new model would contain a GPS receiver was far from certain.

It's unlikely that the iPhone will ship with a navigation package, Google Maps is already pre-installed but doubtless the Appstore will be the place to look once it opens for business.

There's even better news, the device will cost less:

So can we expect an announcement from TomTom tomorrow???

That's not necessarily good news if you're using it on another network. The new phone discount may mean it's not so easy to buy without signing up to a an 18mth contract as it was previously Crying or Very sad

Not read the full spec for the phone, but hope that they now allow the phone to connect to a Mac via bluetooth, and i hope any wifi connection works better than it doesn't on osx 10.5.3 on my MBP.
Oh, and did I mention a 5mp camera?, removable battery and card slot?

I'm not a fan just yet.

I hope the rumour is true but let's wait and see what transpires. Engagdget could be fishing here as we have had no such information insider or otherwise. Had I known but been subject to NDA I could say nowt but as I don't I can confirm I know nothing if that makes any kind of sense!


Does look good though Wink

Engadget quoted GPSReview who quoted Reuters.

Doesn't look like "fishing" to me.
TomTom on iPhone. YAY!!!

99 to upgrade. It's a buy for me. Hope tomtom are quick getting software out then I can sell my tomtom one.

I get sick of having to buy new tomtom units to get new features. Provided tomtom update the software on a fairly regular basis it would be nice to avoid this.

Are you sure about the 5mp camera. It wasn't mentioned in the keynote presentation last night and I have seen other sites moaning about the camera being the same as the current one.

I am hoping it will still support edge. 3G is not covered where I am and looks like not likely to be in the near future.

O2's web site has tariffs advertised, and they are talking about pay as you go - no prices associated with those yet. But they are talking about 99 pounds with an 18 month contract at 35 a month.
