Freescale Smart-Book Tablet Concept Revealed Freescale's Tablet Reference Design Preempts The Apple Tablet

Freescale has unveiled a reference design for the Freescale Smart-Book
Tablet, a touchscreen tablet PC that has been designed to compete with
the forthcoming Apple tablet.ย Frescale's Smart-Book Tablet will run on
either the Android mobile OS or custom Linux, providing a web-based
mobile computer in a low-profile, finger-friendly design
The Freescale Smart-Book Tablet reference design is more than a
prototype, as this unit is expected to begin shipping in the summer of
2010.ย It will feature a 7-inch touchscreen display, Android OS or
custom Linux and will run Freescale's i.MX515 processor– which
competes well with the ARM Cortex-A8 processor in the iPhone 3GS.ย
Freescale's tablet will also start with 512MB RAM, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi
and 3G connectivity.
It has been suggested that the Freescale Smart-Book Tablet might sell on
the street for $200, as this web-only device could operate with very
basic components.ย Its storage would range between 4GB and 64GB,
supplemented by microSDHC cards.ย Expect more news on the Freescale
Smart-Book at CES 2010, but look for availability updates after February
when Freescale begins sharing this reference design with potential
manufacturing and development partners.
