"This the city, darling. Anything goes"?

According to Gizmodo, Kim Cattrall (Samantha from "Sex And the City" will be one of the voices that can be downloaded to TomTom GPS devices.

According to the TomTom press release, "
In global partnership with Navtones®, Kim Cattrall is the latest celebrity to join the growing line up of celebrity and character voices available for use on devices made by TomTom, the world's leading navigation solutions provider."

Gizmodo opines, "Not only will her voice remind you of that horrible show every time you need to make a turn, but it'll throw in annoying non sequiturs like 'This is the city, darling. Anything goes' or 'Don't touch my Manolos' at random times for added irritation. Why, oh god can anyone tell me why?"

list of voice downloads for TomTom includes:
* John Cleese ("
Product contains language that some people may find explicit or offensive.")
* Burt Reynolds ("Calm, cool, and irreverent, Burt's a veteran of the street scene.")

* Dennis Hopper ("No self-respecting rider/driver would mount up without him, the original king of the road.") and

* Mr. T (
"Don't be a FOOL! Even if you're not, Mr. T disagrees, as only he could. Obey his directions, or else...")
