Intel, Symbian forge wireless development deal

Intel Corp. and Symbian Ltd. will team up to help software developers create applications for Intel's Personal Internet Client Architecture (PCA) using Symbian's mobile phone operating system, the companies announced Tuesday.

Symbian announced that it will support the Intel PCA, Intel's blueprint for building both third generation (3G) wireless devices and software for combining voice and Internet access, while both companies will work to port Symbian's OS to future Intel processors based on the PCA, the companies said.

As part of the deal, the companies will jointly develop design guides for working with the Symbian OS and Intel PCA, they said in a statement. They will also offer Symbian OS tools bundled with Intel PCA developer kits and host technical and educational sessions at both the Intel Developer Forum and the Symbian Developer Expo, the companies said.

Intel's PCA is gaining popularity as a platform; more than 73 software and hardware companies have thrown their support behind the platform, including IBM Corp. and British Telecommunications PLC.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
