That's a pretty bold, and interesting call. I like it. It would conclude the slide from stand alone PND to mobile phone as the device of choice. They could easily go with Google, but the TomTom package must offer a more seamless global approach, and like you said, it may have a more significant implication, like it being the first step in a courtship.

Scott, I think there is a good chance of Samsung buying TomTom since it looks like they want to go to their own platform. Either way this is a big move since Samsung is the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world.
