Freescale’s Concept Designs Push Netbooks Further

Earlier this week, Freescale demonstrated a smartbook mash-up that’s bound for shop shelves later this year. But Freescale isn’t stopping there: The company has crafted several concepts for how these netbook-like devices might look in the future.

To me, that part is what makes the future of the smartbook more assured. With the impending arrival of the kneetop-internet surfing Crunchpad, the Samsung Q1EX-71G tablet PC, T-mobile’s Android-powered tablet, and of course the long-rumored Apple version, this sort of form-factor PC will become a more familiar sight.
