Chip giant Intel offered an insight into how emerging technology will soon change the way mobile users work, during this week's Intel Developers Forum in San Jose, California.

The company provided details of its Mobile Internet PC 2004 vision, outlining a number of initiatives designed to improve mobile connectivity.

One such technology, dubbed "always best-connected wireless operation", is designed to provide users with wireless connections, either over a cell phone network or via the 802.11 wireless Lan standard.

The event saw a demonstration of how a user would be able to roam between a cell phone network and a wireless Lan, without losing the data connection when switching between the two types of network.

Intel also unveiled a new chipset called Manitoba, designed for future mobile phones. Based on the company's Xscale mobile processor, Intel said the new chip integrated flash memory, processor and cell phone capabilities into a single chip.

New phones based on the chip will offer support for USB and memory cards, allowing them to connect and exchange data with PCs and PDAs.
