"Hardware specialist Via is working with Transmeta to develop a range of wearable computers based on the low-powered Crusoe processor."

"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."
