Pegatron, part of Asusa, shows us the prototype of its Freescale-powered netbook PC. Basically, the netbook is powered by the same ARM Cortex-A8 architecture used in the Palm Pre and that’s the reason why a Palm Pre is placed next to the it.
Pegatron’s prototype is powered by the Freescale iMX515 processor that uses the same same 65nm ARM Cortex-A8 chip that boosts the Palm Pre. Instead of 600MHz, the Freescale runs at 1GHz full speed. Thanks to the Cortex-A8 chip, the netbook is able to do 720p HD playback and 3D gaming.
Powered by a low power consumption processor, the netbook can run 4.5-8 hours on a two-cell battery. It offers memory card reder, USB ports and D-sub video output. No words yet on when will it hit the market.
