RIM Snags Dash Navigation
So those reports about Research In Motion acquiring Dash Navigation? True. RIM (RIMM) said today that it had purchased the maker of maps for GPS devices for an undisclosed sum. Just what the company intends to do with Dash–which abandoned the hardware market to license its networked GPS technology to other device makers–is unclear. That said, it’s likely that we’ll see Dash’s GPS mapping and personal navigation solution bundled with future BlackBerry devices.
