"Early this year, Freescale launched a new processor called the
i.MX515 Cortex A8 Netbook Processor. Company literature positions
the part for "low-power, gigahertz performance Netbooks at sub-$200
price points". According to CNET, Glen Burchers, director of global
marketing for Freescale's consumer products group, says
“Because the primary function (of a Netbook) is accessing the
Internet, Linux and Firefox are a good operating system and
application for that purpose."
"Freescale is developing a reference design with ASUS-subsidiary
Pegatron. It will feature the 1GHz i.MX51 processor, Ubuntu Linux,
Adobe's Flash Player, a new power management chip and the SGTL5000
ultra-low-power audio codec."
