"Hardware specialist Via is working with Transmeta to develop a
range of wearable computers based on the low-powered Crusoe
"Via president, Ed McConaghay, said the company evaluated other
processors but chose Crusoe because of its low power and low heat
features, which are ideal for mobile workers."
"...The company's next generation wearable computers will
incorporate the 700Mhz Crusoe chip and will run Microsoft Windows
2000. The systems will be designed to work with Via's super VGA
indoor readable display or indoor/outdoor display. Testing will be
completed by the end of the year and general availability is
planned for the end of the first quarter of 2001."
