Freescale is powering a new Smartbook design by Wistron running Canonical's Ubuntu Netbook Remix, Sharp runs a Freescale processor in the Sharp PC-Z1 and Acer is launching the DisplayPlus D241H 24-inch smart monitor.
This device is so far the most awesome I have seen at IFA 2009, it's a 5" Smartbook, one of the worlds first that will be released running on an ARM Cortex A8 processor by Freescale. Running Ubuntu 9.04 for ARM optimized for this ARM processor.
In this video I boot-up the machine (you probably wouldn't need to boot it up really, it's got 10 hours battery life and can probably go into standby just fine with instant resume from standby). I go on certain websites like Engadget.com over WiFi and I ask the Sharp PC-Z1 products representative a bunch of questions.

Steve Sperle of Freescale introduces the Freescale ARM Cortex A8 powered Smartbook by Pegatron and an Android device by Inventec IAC runing smooth video playback as well.
Kinpo is making a 7 inch Android tablet powered by a Freescale processor. A bunch of engineers happened to come by the Freescale headquarters with this device while I was there filming a whole bunch of other videos. I then convinced them to show it to me and to let me film it. They installed Android on a 800x480 resolution 7" touchscreen tablet device. It works pretty smoothly though they obviously have some tweaking that they still need to do before such a device can be sold. This device currently has some pretty obvious bugs like the video not playing correctly.
