Smartphone meets netbook


Freescale has
teamed up with the Savannah College of Art and Design to show off a few next-generation "smartbook" form factors based around its new i.MX515 CPU.

The new class of cloud-centric devices sport larger displays than smartphones, all-day battery life, instant-on functionality, while incorporating some netbook features as well.

However, unlike netbooks, smartbooks are smaller, fan-less devices, with impressive battery life, and unlike smartphones they should offer a much more pleasant UI, more screen acreage and spacious keyboards. Basically, they are supposed to offer the best of both worlds.

Several prototypes are to be showcased at Computex, but there's still no details on any upcoming products.
