Freescale is possibly landing a major hit at the CES 2008 with their 'motherboard on-chip' processor, dubbed LimePC. We got a photo from I4U reader Jeff (Thanks!) showing the possibly called LimePC M1, which is apparently no bigger than an iPod nano.

The LimePC featuring Graphics, Audio cards, PCI, Ethernet, SATA, USB motherboard is smaller than the Apple iPod nano. Just imagine a full Linux PC inside a iPod nano - I would love to have one in my pocket!

The LimePC UMPC is running LimeOS, which is based on Linux or as my source says MorphOS. The korean press-release I found about LimePC says it is based on Debian Linux and full screen HTML based user interface and Web 2.0 applications.
The FreeScale MPC5121e CPU has already been introduced earlier this year. Back then I guess it was not clear that the goal is to make tiny UMPCs.

Information about the LimePC is still thin. I gathered most of it you see here from a Korean language release. I assume Canadian based FreeScale will release more information about the LimePC today at the CES 2008. Update: Freescale LimePC details revealed, LimePC M1 Linux UMPC Details.

CES 2008 officially starts today. The flood gates to the CES show floor in Las Vegas will open and we get to see all the beautiful new TVs, gadgets and booth babes.
