Freescale to have a couple dozen tablets on display at CES 2011

At CES 2010 Freescale had a booth in the ereader area. Next month they're going to do much the same, only they plan have upwards of 25 tablets on display (according to my source). From Computerworld:

The tablets all use Arm-based processors from Freescale's i.MX family of chips and many of them run Google's Android mobile software, said Glen Burchers, head of marketing at Freescale's consumer chip division.

Among the 11 tablets already on sale around the world, ten are Android devices and one runs Microsoft Windows CE, he said.

Freescale did indeed have an interesting booth last year. That was the only time I've ever seen a Txtr ereader in the flesh; it was stolen the next day. No, I didn't take it.

Curiously enough, Freescale won't have a booth at CES 2011. Instead they will be exhibiting from a suite of rooms in the Palazzo. I'm not all that familiar with that hotel, but I beleive the rooms will be close to the convention rooms where the press conferences will be held.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
