SiRF & Intel partnership

SiRF Technology, the creator of the famous SiRFstar receivers used in a majority of GPS units, has announced a licensing and joint development deal with the CPU maker Intel. While the companies will not say exactly what they intend to produce, the expected results of the collaboration are said to involve "a wide range of mobile devices," and to "help location and wireless connectivity become more mainstream." Suggested platforms include cellphones, laptops, mobile Internet browsers and other handheld gear, specifically those equipped with Wi-Fi and/or WiMAX. This could be a reference to the Intel Metro concept, said to already be in production by an unknown builder.
