TomTom and HTC announce partnership

We learned last month that HTC was working on bundling cached maps with Sense devices, and today the OEM, along with faltering nav veterans TomTom, announced that HTC’s Locations would come with TomTom’s “location-rich” maps for free. While the maps can be used at no charge, a paid download will be required for turn-by-turn navigation.

Initially, the software will be launched in Europe and Asia for Desire and Desire Z. No specific plans have been laid out for US releases, but when asked about the possibility of the service coming stateside last month, HTC’s Eric Lin said it hadn’t been ruled out.
