Intel yesterday announced the industry's first single-chip processor for advanced cellular phones using EDGE wireless networks. The Intel® PXA800EF combines the key components of today's cellular phones with an XScale™ processor for advanced applications and multimedia. The single-ship design allows for smaller devices with longer battery life. The 312 MHz processor features 4 MB of integrated flash memory and 512 KB of SRAM. EDGE provides 2-3 times faster speeds compared to current GPRS networks. The PXA800EF is sampling today, with production volumes expected in the first quarter of 2004. Cellular phones using the chip will be available later in 2004.
