Orion’s iPhone app

Orion has announced its StarSeek astronomy app for the iPhone and iPod touch; it’s almost certainly a rebadged version of Carina Software’s SkyVoyager, which I have. It also looks like they’re rebadging the Wi-Fi telescope control module I blogged about in February (Carina’s, Orion’s). I wonder if SkyVoyager and StarSeek will simultaneously coexist — might be confusing — or if StarSeek will supplant SkyVoyager. In amateur astronomy, where the same product is sold under a half-dozen brand names at the same time — sometimes at different price points! — I wouldn’t bet against the former.
