O2 to offer devices using Intel's Manitoba chip

UK carrier O2 this week agreed to offer handsets using Intel's mobile phone chip, codenamed Manitoba. Intel first launched Manitoba in 2003, but the company has struggled to get mobile phones using the device to market. The deal marks Intel's first formal handset chip deal. The mobile phone chip market is dominated by Texas Instruments. Intel also said that its 3G phone chip, called Hermon, will ship later this year. No financial details of the deal were released.
