To get the bad news over with first: this is just a concept. Put down your Visa card. Freescale's been exploring the various shapes and uses tablets could take over the years, with this smartbook concept being ideal for DJs.

It's shown with a dock, which has all the audio ports one could possibly dream of for something so portable. Then, taking the tablet out of the dock would allow for a lighter media experience when on the train, for example.


This smartbook concept comes after work with the Savannah College of Art and Design, and follows several other designs—including this one which has integrated joysticks and a qwerty keyboard. In regards to actual tablets that Freescale has any hope of producing, well—it's not looking good. While the specs look great on paper for their $199 tablet, during our hands-on at CES we were left wanting a lot, lot more. [Freescale via SlashGear]
