HOBBIT CHIP IN “COMMUNICATORS”

By CBR Staff Writer

More details have come to light about AT&T Microelectronics Hobbit RISC chip: last we heard (CI No 1,862) the hairy-footed little creature was being used by ex-Sun man Bernie La Croute at his pen-driven computer start-up Eo Corp. AT&T is now touting the chip round manufacturers interested in producing communicators with it. These hand-sized products will have a screen and an electronic pen and will be used to send electronic notes or postcards to people via digital signal processors transmitted over phone lines or radio networks. They differ from pen-based computers in that the handwriting will not have to be translated or recognised by CPU.
