Intel is pushing its Strongarm processor as a core chip for mobile computing through a codevelopment agreement with Symbian, writes Eric Doyle.

The companies will work together to develop applications for Intel's Personal Internet Client Architecture (PCA).

Under the agreement, the Symbian operating system for cell phones will be ported to PCA for Strongarm and future Xscale processors from Intel. The companies will also produce developer guides, seminars and tools for producing applications to run on the new platform.

PCA is Intel's blueprint for high-performance applications running on ultra-low-power devices to combine voice and Internet-based data communications.

The agreement follows Palm's decision to use Strongarm for its handheld computers to boost power and enable advanced multimedia and mobile applications. It is unlikely that Palm will switch from its current operating system to Symbian.
