Intel, T do chips

Intel and AT&T are teaming up to build some chips that do WiMAX and VoIP, reports Business Week. Very sketchy on details, long on corporate vision etc. AT&T and Intel have talked this up before but the article makes it seem like new news. Not so. The real gem is at the end of the piece. “Intel has agreed to invest an undisclosed sum in Clearwire Inc., wireless pioneer Craig McCaw’s company, which is building a nationwide WiMax network. Although none of the companies has provided specifics of how they’ll work together, the most likely scenario is that McCaw will build the WiMax network, and AT&T will use his network to market its own services.”
