I was browsing through my mailbox and spotted some news about the i.MX515 processor
in a Freescale news letter:
"Collaboration with top operating system and wireless component providers enables 3G connectivity and additional OS choices"

Freescaleâ€™s netbook reference design is available now. The company currently is sampling the i.MX515 processor to tier one netbook customers. Volume production for the i.MX515 device is planned for Q2 2009 to power netbooks designed for the 2009 holiday shopping season. Support for 3G connectivity, as well as for the Android, Phoenix Technologies and Xandros operating systems, is expected to coincide with volume production of the i.MX515."
