TomTom GPS Update

French language site, MacGeneration spoke with Yann Lafargue of TomTom about the their navigation software on the iPhone. The company does have its software running on an iPhone. Lafargue states that the discovery of a restrictive clause within the iPhone SDK agreement that restricts real-time route guidance isn't an obstacle, and is Apple's way of protecting itself. Still, TomTom is proceeding with caution with it's plans to bring its software to the App Store. "In general, Apple has so far worked with more Americans than Europeans, prompting a caution. There is a whole set of things to confirm before talking about marketing." Editor's note: Quote translated using Google Translate. Via iLounge

Analyst surveys developers post-keynote.  Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Musnter chatted with 20 Apple developers after Monday's keynote address. Gene learned that of the 20 developers he spoke to, 50% attended to develop exclusivley for the iPhone/iPod touch, 50% we're developing "Enterprise apps." While 70% had written applications for other mobile platforms.  With regard to app pricing, 71% of the apps would be free, with the average paid app price to be $2.29. These numbers are nice, but can 20 developers out of 5,200 be any real indication of the developer community's plans for the iPhone/iPod touch? Via AppleInsider

O2 customers will also be able to use their data account information to log in with their laptops and desktops. - Bluetooth tethering for laptops.

Rumor: App Store to Launch June 27

 TUAW, posted this screenshot from the Australian iPod touch page that shows the App Store launching June 27. That's a bit earlier then the "early July" official statement from Apple. We searched the site looking for this image and tried looking at cached versions of the site from yesterday with no luck. So either the image was only up for a few moments today and then quickly pulled and someone is now searching for a new job, or it's a mockup created by the TUAW tipster. We sent a query to TUAW about the image and will update when we find out who took the image in question. Regardless, if this is true, yippppeeee!
