Jun 27, 2000, 14:27 (2 Talkback[s])

"Rebel.com Inc., a leading supplier of business networking technologies, announced its intention to adopt Transmeta's Crusoe processor family in a future line of residential and small business gateways that will add to its NetWinder OfficeServer line of products."

"What we are announcing today is that we intend to utilize Transmeta's Crusoe processor family for a family of residential and small business gateway products," said Michael Mansfield, president of Rebel.com. "Rebel.com selected Crusoe based on a number of factors, including its ability to work in a small fanless enclosure, its low power consumption, its high performance and its compatibility with industry standards. These are very important strengths of Transmeta's Crusoe processor family which differentiated it from other processor architectures we evaluated."

"At our booth at PC Expo, we will be demonstrating a seamless wireless mobile internet computing environment consisting of web slates and ultra-light laptop computers connected through a residential gateway back to an ISP," said Steve Goldstein, VP of Business Development at Transmeta. "We foresee this multi-platform architecture moving into homes and small businesses starting later this year. Rebel.com is developing a family of Crusoe-based gateways that fully support this environment, and we have worked closely with them during their development. Rebel.com will be joining us in our booth # 3454 at PC Expo in New York, June 27 - 29, 2000, showing a prototype of their upcoming Crusoe-based gateway."
