Freescale's new smartbook reference design measures 200mm x 128mm x 14.9cm and weighs 376 grams, which is heavier than a smartphone but substantially lighter than a netbook. This is achieved because the device does not need a fan or heat sink, due to its low power consumption.
The company said in its statement that the tablet design, which provides a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels, would run applications such as a web browser, media centre, PDF viewer, mail client, office suite and social media widgets.
Freescale said in its statement that devices based on its design would give users "instant-on functionality, persistent connectivity and all-day battery life", although it has not yet given a precise life for the 1,900mAh battery.
