Intel has tried to breathe new life into its relationship with Microsoft.
The chip giant announced that the two companies will work together to optimise the Windows CE.Net operating system, which aims to take advantage of Intel's XScale chips.
Intel launched two processors aimed at the handheld and PDA market, PXA250 and PXA210, at its Developer's Forum in San Francisco earlier this week.
Both chips are based on XScale architecture.
Microsoft will tweak its PDA operating system for the new chips, according to its representative, and will spotlight the compiler, kernel and board support.
Intel for its part will distribute its DBPX250 toolkit to its developers to optimise the hardware.
Such tools can be used to increase the number of frames per second in streaming video on a PDA, or to increase the resolution.
