Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Tablet PC is a notebook PC-based computer designed to allow PC
users to use a more natural way of interacting with a computer. At
the same time, Tablet PC will remain connected to the Internet or
the office network, even if the user is only moving down the hall
to a meeting room or the café."
"Tablet PC packs a new pen-based user interface, along with
handwriting recognition software into a portable form factor. When
not being toted around, the device rest in a cradle on a user's
desk and connects to a full size keyboard and mouse...."
"The success of Tablet PC could certainly help Transmeta.
However, despite its role as processor provider for the demo units,
Transmeta is not claiming to be the exclusive processor provider
for Tablet PC."
"Instead, Transmeta's David Ditzel, vice chairman and chief
technology officer, exudes the confidence that his chip is the
right choice, among several. As far as he is concerned, Crusoe is
the only chip "that could give (Microsoft) the long battery life
and the performance" needed for the Tablet PC."
