Intel and Symbian join forces

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

Symbian will support the Intel PCA, Intel's blueprint for building third generation (3G) wireless devices and software for combining voice and Internet access. The companies said in a statement that they will both work to port Symbian's operating system to future Intel processors based on the PCA.

As part of the deal, the companies will jointly develop design guides for working with the Symbian OS and Intel PCA. 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.

Intel's PCA is gaining popularity as a platform: more than 73 software and hardware companies have thrown their support behind it, including IBM and BT.
