Intel Delaying Centrino 2
Intel is pushing back the launch of its Centrino 2 notebook platform to July 14th, claims a new rumor from TG Daily. The news from insiders allegedly near Intel would have Intel not only delay its launch of newer processors and chipsets past June but force the company to scrap a planned debut at the Computex show on June 3rd. The delay is said to be a combination of both hurdles relating to FCC approval for the 802.11n Wi-Fi chipset as well as flaws with integrated graphics chipsets found by Intel late into development.
Sprint and Clearwire today announced the unification of their two WiMAX Internet services into a single company that they hope will drive the 4G wireless standard. Simply titled Clearwire, the business will share the services of both the old Clearwire and Sprint's Xohm network in a single national WiMAX provider and is said to help promote the concept of an open wireless standard that allows any device and software to run; the combined build-out of the two should cover between 120 and 140 million Americans by the end of 2010, the involved companies say.
