We’re all fairly familiar with the iPhone’s App Store and the Android Marketplace, but do you think that dedicated GPS devices need an application store as well? It seems that Harold Goddijn, CEO of TomTom, has confirmed that the GPS company is laying out plans to embrace an app store approach to offer apps to its customers by the end of the year. If things go according to plan, the webkit-based operating system is supposed to create a platform for innovation in both the consumer and automotive market. But regardless of whatever the folks at TomTom say, it’ll be interesting to see how consumers take to an application store for a GPS device. After all, you probably wouldn’t be checking your Facebook account on the navigation device all the time, would you? Still, it’s something interesting to keep an eye on.
