Intel invests in Skype, companies partner to improve VoIP

Intel has invested in Skype in an effort to make certain that the VoIP service provider's software products are streamlined for Intel's next generation of dual-core processors. The companies say they will work together at the R&D level to build enhanced audio for VoIP networks. The chipmaker wants to ensure that Skype runs as well as possible on the upcoming Centrino mobile platform, code-named "Napa," which is due out in the first half of next year. Financial terms of the investment and partnership were not disclosed. Skype is a member of the 2005 FierceWireless Fierce 15, an annual list of the top emerging wireless companies.
