Moorestown is still built on a 45nm process but integrates a memory controller, video encode/decode engine and graphics onto a single chip. Intel positions Moorestown as a two chip solution: one being the main processor/graphics core, the other being used for I/O.Intel showed off a Moorestown prototype which looks a lot like a wider version of the iPhone. Check it out at AnandTech. The Moorestown platform is expected to be ready in 2009/2010.
Moorestown should reduce overall package size by 50%, reduce power by half and idle power down by a factor of 10x. Intel didn't clarify any of the statements on power consumption, so your guess is as good as ours as to how.
