RIM to Adopt Intel Xscale on Blackberry Devices
Posted on 29-Sep-2005 05:52 | Tags Filed under: News



Intel Corporation and Research In Motion (RIM) are working together on a technology collaboration in which RIM will use Intel communications technology in future BlackBerry devices.

RIM is adopting the Intel XScale architecture and will utilise the Intel PXA9xx cellular processor, codenamed ‘Hermon’, for its next-generation BlackBerry devices that will run on high-speed EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution) networks. In addition, Intel and RIM will continue working together to drive new wireless technologies and handset features, while also working to support and expand the rich ecosystem of BlackBerry applications and services.

As part of an integrated communications platform, the Intel PXA9xx cellular processor includes the Intel XScale core for applications and the Intel Micro Signal Architecture (Intel MSA) core for digital signal processing and supports a variety of air interfaces. The Intel PXA9xx platform features Intel Flash memory. Intel XScale architecture provides users of data-enabled communications devices with the ability to enjoy a richer experience while running a variety of multimedia and internet applications.
