The plot is thickening nicely on Intel's so-called non-product the WebPad. Apart from the fact that bitter rival Cyrix-NatSemi already has a reference design for something called the WebPad, it could be that Intel Architecture Labs is even less innovative than we thought. According to several emails received by The Register since yesterday's stories, the Intel description is similar to an Acorn reference design called the NewsPad, several years ago. It was based on ARM technology. It arrived along with another interesting design called the Acorn stork. A kind reader sent us a URL with information about the Acorn NewsPad. It is here. An unnamed Korean company also had a similar design based on an ARM chip. It had a built in screen, used GPS and had voice recognition technology. Shouldn't Intel stop talking Web Pad anyway? Cyrix might want to investigate possible trademark infringement. It always did win its court cases against Intel in the past. A representative from Cyrix-NatSemi confirmed that WebPad is one of its trademarks... Intel ready to roll with StrongARM Web Pad "idea" has references to the other stories we've written on this vexed subject. ®
