Intel, IBM ally for wireless development

IBM will port the embedded version of its WebSphere Everyplace Suite middleware, as well as device tools, to the Intel StrongARM processor and future processors based on Intel XScale microarchitecture. And in the Intel PCA software developer kit and hardware reference design guide slated for release later this year, Intel will feature and distribute IBM's device middleware.

Intel PCA is made up of interchangeable hardware and software building blocks for placing wireless Internet capabilities into devices. IBM's middleware software facilitates communication between a device and a back-end server, easing the programming costs for writing applications for multiple devices.

The two companies also announced they will work together to deliver standards-based hardware and software for next-generation, Internet-ready devices, targeting device manufacturers, application developers and carriers. They made the announcements at the CTIA Wireless 2001 conference in Las Vegas, organised by the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association.

The announcements expand agreements IBM and Intel made last October, when they collaborated to deliver a client reference platform with IBM VisualAge Micro Edition Toolkit support for the Intel XScale microarchitecture. IBM and Intel will expand this effort to include personal digital assistants, web tablets, cell phones and other Internet-ready devices.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
