$199 Freescale Tablet runs Chrome OS

Charbax (678404) writes "This is an extensive video interview with Freescale's Manager of Software development about their integration of the Chromium OS onto their ARM Cortex A8 i.MX51 based $199 Tablet reference design.

It seems to run smoothly and fast with multiple tabs. No touch screen support yet so input is using a USB keyboard and mouse for now, but the WiFi drivers are fine. Freescale is also demonstrating Android and Ubuntu versions. Those have 3G sim card reader built-in, even an HDMI output and 720p video playback. The question is, will they be able to support full Chrome browser web browsing at full speed on the most Javascript and Flash intensive websites and support an unlimited amount of opened tabs?"

The video shows a true tablet with a touch screen.
