Diamond branching into Web tablets
Posted: 20-Jan-2000 [Source: C/Net]

[One day after Transmeta came out of hiding, the company's first partner is set to follow with a "Web Pad." ]

Saratoga, Calif. -- "Diamond Multimedia will announce a "Web pad" device using Transmeta's Crusoe chip today, people familiar with the company's plans said at an event here yesterday. Diamond, which makes such hardware as modems and video acceleration chips, recently began manufacturing a portable MP3 player and has previously flirted with tablet-sized computers.

"Web pads, little bigger than their LCD screens, haven't yet hit the mainstream, despite being in development for several years. The easy-to-use devices are typically operated by pen, not keyboard and mouse, and connect to the Internet either wirelessly or through a wireless connection to a home networking station or PC. Industry heavyweights like Intel, National Semiconductor and Palm Computing have all experimented with the concept.
