"The power-saving Crusoe chip manufactured by Transmeta that
promises to double the life of batteries hits the consumer market
next month inside Sony's new ultra-slim laptop."
"Sony's latest models of the VAIO computer PictureBook, powered
by Transmeta's much-hyped microprocessor, are set to land on store
shelves in mid- to late October."
"It's tailored toward the traveling business professional," Mark
Hanson, vice president and general manager of Sony's PC product
line, said of the Crusoe-backed PictureBook. "Now they can fly
coast-to-coast without having to look for another battery."
"The postage stamp-sized Crusoe chip was unveiled in January
after five years of highly secretive research and development at
the Santa Clara, Calif.-based upstart Transmeta. Intel, the world's
leading chipmaker, has also since released similar power-saving
microprocessors using the company's SpeedStep technology."
