ARM-based netbooks coming

Qualcomm and Freescale, who build ARM-based platforms, are expected to demonstrate netbooks using their products at the Computex Taipei expo in June, DigiTimes reported on Thursday, citing sources at netbook makers. The show will reportedly see the debut of a Pegatron netbook running on Freescale's i.MX51 CPU on ARM's Coretex A8 mainboard as well as a Wistron model with a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU.

A third model, based on NVIDIA's Tegra system-on-chip platform, will apparently be released at a later, unconfirmed date. Taiwan's Micro-Star International (MSI) is reportedly considering developing the Tegra-based notebooks, while both MSI and ASUS already confirmed they are thinking of releasing Qualcomm CPU-based netbooks.
