NAVTEQ announces NAVTEQ Traffic for Microsoft Windows Live FrameIt
"NAVTEQ and Microsoft have extended our relationship to enable our customers to get the content they want, when and where they want it on wireless digital picture frames," said Jeff Hansen, General Manager — Services Marketing. "By streaming real-time traffic information onto Windows Live FrameIt enabled devices, we’re offering our customers convenient and compelling information that changes by the minute and that is easily customizable — delivering meaningful content they’ll rely on throughout the day — every day."
When Windows Live FrameIt was announced it was obvious that there was going to be a lot of partnerships with external companies but I had assumed that that would be with hardware retailers, it never occurred to me that this would happen with digital service providers as well. It whets the appetite as to what other organisations will partner with FrameIt.
I’m expecting some more announcements regarding FrameIt at the next Consumer Electronics Show but its nice to see announcements coming out before FrameIt has even established itself.
