Nike announced collaborations this morning with leading fitness wearable makers, providing deeper integration of the Nike+ running app with select partner apps for athletes and casual runners around the globe.

TomTom has finally arrived for Android. Although, I can think of one platform that might benefit from it much more than we can. All joking aside, TomTom is one of the more well-known names in navigation and the application brings 3.7GB of maps and route data straight to your Android device. It doesn’t get much more intense than this. (more…)
In the Android ecosystem, once Google Maps got the ability to navigate via GPS, most people moved over and used that as their go-to navigation system. Before that, TomTom was big and now they are looking to regain some of their market share by releasing their application on Android.
If you’re a diehard TomTom fan you’ll be happy to know that the app will most likely launch this summer. The report is that “summer season is important” for TomTom so we might get to see the application within the next month or so. On iPhone the TomTom app is $59.99, granted it has a few tricks that Google Nav doesn’t. Can an Android user justify spending that kind of cash on this application? We’ll have to wait and see.
