Intel has revealed that it will be integrating High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) with its new generation of Moorestown mobile products.
The company revealed at a developer forum event in Taipei that it had inked a deal with Ericsson to offer HSPA access on the upcoming mobile platform.
Ericsson will be providing the HSPA components, which will run on WCDMA/HSPA and GSM/EDGE mobile broadband networks.
"We see great potential in embedding mobile broadband in [mobile internet devices], creating new markets in the industry," said Johan Wibergh, Ericsson's senior vice president and head of business unit networks.
The Moorestown platform is Intel's programme for the next generation of portable internet-equipped devices. The company plans to integrate the platform into handset devices as well as a new family of netbooks.
"The internet, with all of its richness, versatility and personalisation, will forever change how we think about mobile computing," said Anand Chandrasekher, Intel senior vice president and ultra mobility group general manager.
"The high performance, low power and compatibility of Intel architecture, coupled with Ericsson's 3G mobile technologies, represents one of the ways to accelerate the global adoption of a new breed of mobile internet devices that provide people with more powerful, always-connected internet-based experiences. "
Intel is planning to see the first Moorestown devices hit the streets as soon as 2009. The platform will combine Intel's mobile chipsets with the Atom processor.
