[ Background music ] >> Tom Merritt: Hey I'm Tom Merritt for CNET.com at CES 2010 taking a look at the TomTom Ease, new portable navigation device from Tom Tom. This one is coming in early 2010 so hopefully you'll get it soon and they're emphasizing its slimness. This is the thinnest one they've got and the simplicity, they've really simplified the main screen. When it shows up you can plan a route or you can browse the map now you may have not even realized you could browse the map before, it was there, it was buried a little bit father into the menu system but if you want to plan a route you go right on in, you can either pick enter an address, pick a recent destination, again very simple sort of situation here, nice QWERTY keyboard, good classic Tom Tom interface here but made a little bit easier. The other thing you can do is go and browse the map and this is pretty handy if you know where you are and you just kind of want to know well can I go around the block? Can I you know can I find a restaurant? Use some of those sort of situations. You can just touch screen and move the map around, zoom in, zoom out, that sort of thing. It has all of the Tom Tom features you'd expect like IQ routes and map share, cool stuff. They say it's coming early 2010 and it should be very affordable so I'm hoping a dollar but it'll probably be something around $100 I'm assuming. Once again it is the Tom Tom Ease at CES 2010 I'm Tom Merritt.
