"Just two weeks after its introduction, Transmeta's Crusoe chip is on the road as Sybase is demonstrating a mobile solution based on the microprocessor at the LinuxWorld conference here."

"Transmeta officials, at the chip's launch event two weeks ago, said that the processor will provide an attractive mobile platform due to its capability of offering increased power and battery life. The chip is intended to reduce complexity and expense through a reliance on software rather than silicon

" Sybase is quickly putting that notion to the test, running a demo this week that shows a sales force automation application based on the company's SQL Anywhere database running on a Crusoe-powered device that can syncronize via a wireless hookup to a back-end corporate system."

"Sybase also Tuesday announced its intention to support Mobile Linux on its SQL Anywhere database, a move company officials say will enable future support of emerging mobile Internet devices including Web pads."
