OpenMoko and Dash Navigation announced today that they had teamed up to introduce the first ever Internet connected dashtop GPS device. The Dash Express runs on the Neo mobile hardware and software platform and marks the first time OpenMoko has entered the GPS market.

"We always saw the Neo 1973 as more than a mobile phone; it's the harbinger of the coming generation of open mobile devices aimed at the Web2.0 social networking market," said Sean Moss-Pultz, CEO of OpenMoko. "We knew if we could free the phone, others would springboard from that and build revolutionary products. Dash seized the opportunity, improved the Neo hardware and OpenMoko Linux platform, and built a revolutionary product that will disrupt the mobile GPS market."

The Dash is now available for pre-order for $599.99 and includes three months of free Dash service. The unit will be shipping sometime in February of 2008. The unit includes the mounting arm and cradle as well as car and AC power adapters.
