Intel and MM02 to deliver wireless applications and services to businesses and consumers
A collaboration between Intel Corporation and mmO2 (O2) that will enable both companies to speed the development and delivery of wireless devices and optimized applications was announced today. The two companies will work with hardware and software providers to optimize business and consumer applications for use on wireless devices based on the Intel® Personal Internet Client Architecture (Intel PCA), Intel's development blueprint for designing wireless handheld communication devices that combine voice communications and Internet access capabilities. The applications will be offered to users by O2.

As part of the program, Intel will work with O2 to identify and optimize software programs that O2 can offer to subscribers using Intel-based wireless devices such as the O2 XDA, O2's mobile multimedia device equipped with PDA and cell phone functionality. The optimized applications will be offered through Revolution*, O2's mobile service that offers customers registered on the O2 portal with the opportunity to purchase applications for entertainment, travel, games, reference, business and health.

Both companies will work within their respective developer communities to help speed the development and delivery of wireless devices and optimized applications. Intel's growing community of developers, called the Intel PCA Developer Network, offers wireless companies development, technical and marketing support for designing cell phones, PDAs and other mobile Internet devices and applications supporting Intel PCA. To date, more than 4,500 companies have joined the Intel PCA Developer Network and have access to its more than 750 hardware and software design solutions.

O2's "sourceO2," one of Europe's leading mobile developer programs, will work to create and market rich content, applications and services for wireless devices based on Intel® XScale™ technology based processors.

Work on the collaboration will begin immediately, with optimized applications for Intel-based devices via Revolution available later this year.
