I was really hoping this traffic was coming soon to BlackBerry maps on BlackBerry 10. Now TomTom has announced an updated agreement with BlackBerry to bring real time traffic to their maps app. They didn’t say much else beyond this statement from BlackBerry:

“Having accurate and up-to-date traffic information integrated in BlackBerry Maps is an important feature for customers, and TomTom is a recognized leader that provides traffic data to many companies in the market,” said Adrian Gould, VP of Handheld Software Product Management at BlackBerry. “We are pleased to expand our relationship with TomTom in support of BlackBerry 10 customers.”

Check out the press release below:
