Also, there's supposed to be a new, very fashoinable form factor nowadays. It's been mentioned several times in "powerdeveloper.org" by Genesi themselves. Here, for example:
"The focus will be the new i.mx53 Efika MX Smartbook and Tablet
Of course, it couldn't be anything else. By the way, do you remember that freescale tablet reference desing
, shown in public a year ago? Funnily, it was named "smartbook" indeed!
Genesi took the trend of the netbook form factor exactly when it was hot, but then was late delivering. When the SmartBook (a great little computer, by the way) came, its netbook shape wasn't trendy anymore. This time, perhaps, timing is right
. They even said
that they can't show anything until the freescale tech forum, a month away from now.
