that TomTom has released a brief statement
noting that the GPS car kit for the iPhone will be priced at $119.95 in the U.S. when it launches next month and will be compatible with all iPhone models. The press release reportedly reads:
TomTom announces today that the TomTom car kit for the iPhone will have a recommended retail price of EUR 99.99 or USD 119.95.
The TomTom car kit will be available this October and will be sold separately from the TomTom app. It will be compatible with the iPhone 2G, 3G and 3GS.
All further details on the car kit will be made available soon.
The company released a similar statement yesterday after the device briefly appeared
in a number of European Apple online stores, but U.S. pricing was not addressed at that time. The listings on Apple's site had suggested that the TomTom iPhone application would be included in the car kit price, but TomTom's statement clarified the situation by noting that the application is in fact not included and must be purchased separately.
