Intel, Compaq Join To Develop Wireless Internet

Intel, Compaq Join To Develop Devices And Applications For The Wireless Internet

Intel Corporation and Compaq Computer Corporation today announced they will collaborate to help speed the development of wireless handheld communications devices and applications used to access and transmit data over the Internet.

Compaq also announced its support for the Intel® Personal Internet Client Architecture (Intel PCA) initiative. Intel PCA is a development blueprint for building wireless handheld communications devices that combine voice communications and Internet access capabilities.

As part of the joint effort, the two companies will work together to enable complex multimedia applications to run on Intel PCA-based devices for current and next-generation wireless networks. Additionally, Compaq will support Intel in its efforts to incorporate Compaq iPAQ Pocket PCs - based on the Intel® StrongARM* processor - as reference platforms in Intel PCA developer kits.

Compaq’s iPAQ is one of the industry’s leading Pocket PC offerings. The company recently shipped its one-millionth iPAQ Pocket PC, and according the Gartner Dataquest, became the fastest-growing handheld computer maker in the second quarter.

“Compaq applauds Intel’s efforts to speed the development of applications and services for wireless networks with initiatives like the Intel Personal Internet Client Architecture,” said Sean Burke, Compaq’s vice president and general manager, iPAQ Products and Connected Devices Division. “Compaq will continue to support Intel’s efforts to provide developers with information and tools to create high-performance, multimedia-rich personal Internet devices that run software and services with the help of next-generation networks.”

“As a leader in the handheld computer market segment, Compaq understands the benefits of separating computing and communications functions in a handheld computing device so that both functions are maximized,” said Ron Smith, senior vice president of Intel’s Wireless Communications and Computing Group. “This is the idea behind Intel PCA, so we’re especially pleased to work with Compaq to develop devices and applications that will
help achieve the full potential of advanced data networks through Intel PCA.”
