TomTom provides information for new Blackberry maps

The Blackberry 10 will feature a new map application featuring 2D maps and 3D turn-by-turn directions. The maps were put together by another company, and will feature traffic information from TomTom.

The map content is vector-based which the company says, "is very compact and results in smaller downloads. It also allows for faster rendering when you zoom in and out."

TomTom also provided information for the now infamous Apple Maps which left the technology company red faced and forced Apple CEO Tim Cook to apologise to customers after a barrage of complaints when the iPhone moved away from Google Maps.
