Garmin and TomTom are both going to launch GPS handsets

Industry rumours suggest leading GPS device makers Garmin and TomTom are both going to launch GPS handsets. Currently they both have software products for installation on smartphones, though neither is a major player in this sector yet; and TomTom unveiled a PND with a SIM card slot at this year’s CeBIT show.
 
TomTom’s Taiwanese manufacturers, Quanta Computer and Inventec Appliances, are both experienced handset makers; and Garmin is reportedly in negotiation with another Taiwan-based ODM handset manufacturer, Compal Communications. All parties have declined to comment on the speculations.
