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.
