Intel from what I can determine has decided to not enter the wireless industry but to just concentrate on the PC sector, I am amazed that they won't even try to compete, this shows you how hard this industry is to break into.

This is all I could find that they are doing in the Wireless field;

Actually, I think that Intel has simply decided not to compete with a customer (QCOM) and instead is trying to expand into the NETWORKING chips arena per recent announcements to that effect. Their big target right now appears to be IBM among others.. Should be quite a train wreck! ;^)

Intel, like QCOM, cant be all things to all folks. Seems a good decision on their part (IMO) as the from my recent wireless research it seems that the networking chips area is a bit more open right now..

Long Intel and pretty sure Andy Grove is smart about this sort of thing.. ;^)

cheers,

jgc
