Next time you need to find the nearest restaurant or directions to the interstate, you won’t need to fumble with a cell phone. Ford just announced that they will soon offer vehicles with built-in broadband web service.

Of course, this is only for those seeking out lunch spots during a workday—since it’s only going to be offered on commercial vehicles as part of the Ford Work Solutions package. Can’t us Internet junkies get a break?

If your boss loves you (or loves to work you), you could soon be driving an F-150 pimped with a Microsoft Auto computer, Sprint web access and Garmin GPS. Other features include a 6.5-inch touchscreen, a wireless keyboard and mouse, 2GB of memory, an SD card slot, a USB port, and Bluetooth support.

Four different Ford Work Solutions will be available this fall on the new 2009 Ford F-150 XL, STX, XLT and FX4 trucks; F-Series Super Duty XL, XLT and FX4 trucks; and all 2009 E-Series vans.
