New Modular Computing Core

Antelope Technologies Announces Worldwide Launch at DEMOmobile Conference; New Modular Computing Core -- MCC -- to Ship in 4th Quarter

Antelope Technologies, Inc., a Colorado headquartered company specializing in modular computer technologies, has announced today at DEMOmobile that production has commenced on its Modular Computing Core (MCC) product. The company's initial customer orders are being filled in October and general availability begins November 7, 2003.
"With the modular design of this product we are able to offer a mobile solution like never before," said Kenneth Geyer, co-founder and president of Antelope Technologies, Inc. "Our MCC conforms around the end-user needs to provide a powerful new mobile work environment."

The original modular computing technology that Antelope utilizes was developed by IBM Watson Research Center in New York. Antelope licensed the technology and know-how from IBM to create a unique modular platform. This new platform, known as the MCC, will carry both an Antelope and IBM Modular Architecture logos.

The computer platform of the MCC measures only 3 x 5 x 0.75 inches and weighs approximately 9.1 ounces. This module is a full computer running the complete Microsoft Windows XP Professional operating system. The power supply, display and I/O connectors have been removed -- leaving processor, memory, data and applications. Components removed from the MCC are then arranged into different shells allowing the device to transform into a handheld, then a desktop, and then back to a handheld in just seconds without rebooting or synching.

"The ultra-small form factor of the Antelope MCC perfectly demonstrates the low thermal characteristics of the Transmeta Crusoe processor and what can be accomplished when efficient computing technologies are employed," said Matthew Perry, president and CEO of Transmeta Corporation. "The MCC is the precursor of a new type of computer that successfully combines the power and functionality of a desktop computer with the portability and convenience of a mobile handheld device. Transmeta is proud to partner with Antelope to deliver the World's first ultra-personal computer."
