Intel Centrino Mobile Technology

From PC World:

"During 2006, many of our customers will offer Intel Centrino Mobile Technology laptops that not only feature built in Wi-Fi technology, but also an internal 3GSM data card and an integrated SIM reader," Sean Maloney, executive vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobility Group, said in a statement. "This will turn the notebook into a real multi-communications terminal, and the SIM into a real authentication vehicle for GSM, GPRS, EDGE, 3GSM, HSDPA and Wi-Fi networks."

From TechDirt:

"The Intel action begs the question: if other wireless broadband technologies get deployed first, and then bundled into laptops, what opportunity will be left for mobile WiMAX? In 2005, we said, "If WiMAX falters, is unduly delayed, or is beaten to mobility by some other technology (which appears to be happening), then at some point, Intel will simply abandon ship and adopt the other technology."
