Google Navigator is great and all, but TomTom doesn't think it'll ever be able to compete head-on with a dedicated GPS unit. That's why they've released the Go Live 1000 GPS unit (Electronista). This device sports a capacitive touchscreen and runs on the WebKit UI. It's being bundled (in Europe) with one year of cell-driven Vodafone access.

Basics like speed camera detection, live traffic, and local searching are available in this limited access. This GPS unit also includes IQ routes, which uses past data to determine when an alternate route would be wise.

The Go Live 1000 is powered by a 500 MHz ARM11 chip and 128 MB of RAM. That's quick for a dedicated GPS. It should be online and available in the US soon.
