Intel: Industry's first 'wireless Internet on a chip'

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | (UPI) -- Leading chipmaker Intel Thursday announced the development of a new microchip it says combines the key components of cellular phones and handheld computers onto a single chip, the first in the industry.

Intel's sportily named PXA800F cellular processor combines computing, memory and communications functions to provide Internet access for cell phones, the company says. It also says the microchip will bring advanced functionality, longer battery life and more innovative phone design to mainstream cellular phones.

"As the industry transitions from voice-only phones to advanced devices that combine voice and data, the ability to effectively and efficiently combine advanced processing, memory and communications technologies will be required to drive the next-generation of cell phones," said Intel Vice President Hans Geyer in a statement.

The company expects the chip to be available later this year or early next year.
