"Fall is shaping up to be Transmeta's season. ...Fujitsu will
release two notebooks containing Crusoe processors from Transmeta
in November, the company will announce today, bringing the
total number of companies coming out with Transmeta-based products
"Many of Crusoe's benefits... have yet to be tested in the
outside world. Although Transmeta introduced the chip in January,
neither the chip nor computers using it have hit the open market.
Analysts have complained about a lack of independent benchmarks and
stated that no one really knows how well these chips will stack
"Although the public has yet to see the chip, manufacturers are
jumping on the bandwagon. Technically, only Sony and Fujitsu have
announced products based on Crusoe chips. Executives at Hitachi and
IBM, however, have already said that their companies will introduce
light Crusoe notebooks later this year. Gateway and Diamond
Multimedia, meanwhile, plan to come out with Web pads based on
Crusoe, sources close to the companies have said."
