Freescale CPU with E Ink controller

Teleread and Nate's Ebook News have posts about the new i.MX508, but there is a very complete article at LinuxDevices:
Quote:
Freescale Semiconductor announced an ARM Cortex-A8 system-on-chip aimed at e-readers, along with a Linux- and Android-compatible reference design. The i.MX508 integrates an 800MHz Cortex-A8 core with a display controller from E Ink, improving performance, screen resolution, and battery life, while halving cost compared to earlier i.MX-based e-reader designs, says the company.
Quote:
The i.MX508 applications processor is expected to cost less than $10 in quantities greater than 250K units, and begin sampling to select customers early in the third quarter, says Freescale.
The first ARM processor with integrated E Ink controller to ship is the Marvell Armada 166E, which refreshs the E Ink screen of the Entourage Edge faster than the Kindle DX.
