Next month Intel will ship its PCA (Personal Client Architecture) developer kit that will include the Symbian OS and board-level support to optimise application development on the joint platform. The board will also include support for wireless LAN, 802.11, and Bluetooth communications.
In a future version of the PCA toolkit, Intel will also include support for a JVM (Java Virtual Machine), company executives report.
