FreeScale LimePC Details

We already reported about the LimePC yesterday, which is an iPod nano sized Linux UMPC based on Freescale's MPC5121e mobileGT processor, which is a so called "motherboard-on-a-chip" device.

Freescale has now released a full press-release on their site and technical specifications for their highly integrated multi-core embedded computing platform.
The Freescale MPC5121e can be used for many applications in various industries. Of course a very resonating application is the LimePC which runs LimeOS that is based on Debian Linux OS.

Chinese company Tsinghua Tongfang is developing the LimePC line of computers, which is supposed to ship in 2008 initially in China and in fall in the United States.

Freescale's MPC5121e processor will power LimePC's full line of affordable, compact computing products, including UMPCs, pad-style PCs with large touchpad LCD screens, notebook and desktop PCs, and mini-ITX developer kits.
LimePC's consumer PC products will feature one or more MPC5121e processors and a LimeOS and LimeSuite applications software bundle.
Connectivity includes USB 2.0, 802.11g WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR wireless capabilities, as well as 10/100 Ethernet for desktops.

It will be interesting to see if this platform can take off, if it does Intel and Microsoft will have some work to do.
