Transmeta branches out with Web tablet


Author: JT Smith

CNET: “A long-awaited Crusoe-based Web tablet is set to hit the market this week.

Sonicblue–the former graphics-chip company turned Internet-appliance
maker–announced on Monday that it began shipping ProGear, a wireless Internet tablet
using Transmeta’s Crusoe TM3200 chip. Sonicblue (formerly known as S3) was one of the first
companies to announce plans to build a Transmeta-based device, shortly after the chipmaker
emerged from stealth mode in January 2000.”
