"Portola Valley, Calif., July 10, 2007 — Gumstix, Inc, today announced its integrated, open source cellular communications platform: the Goliath(TM)[PDF] line of expansion boards. The Goliath-vx board provides GPRS/EDGE function while the Goliath-GPS-vx board combines GPRS/EDGE and GPS. Each Goliath board attaches to a gumstix(TM) motherboard (verdex only) using a 60-pin connector and includes audio, LCD, touch screen, USB host, 3D-accelerometer, and battery management. General availability is planned for late July and the company will begin taking pre-orders at gumstix.com starting on 16 July."
