Intel Adds HSPA Mobile Broadband Technology to Moorestown Smartphone Chip

5:50 am on October 21, 2008 | Category: Cellular, WiMAX, Wireless Technology


Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker, Intel Corp., appears to be hedging its bets on the much-hyped WiMAX technology, announcing at yesterday’s Intel Developer Forum that it would integrate High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) cellular broadband technology with its forthcoming smartphone platform, Moorestown.

Swedish telecom equipment maker, Ericsson, will provide HSPA data modules for Moorestown, a so called “system on a chip,” which combines a 45-nanometer processor, as well as graphics, memory controller, and video encode/decode modules into a single chip.

This move by Intel ensures that Moorestown-based smartphones will be able to connect to the internet via either cellular broadband or WiMAX networks.
