BSOD on Cellphones
Hoping to unseat
Nokia as the world's largest cell phone manufacturer, Intel and Microsoft
announced (at the Feb. 2002 GSM World Congress) a joint venture to develop
data-enabled 3G handsets. They're targeting the Asia market. TI will
team with MS to provide RFICs. Will we soon be inundated with cell phones
bearing the Windows label and a sticker saying "Intel Inside?" My question:
Will there be Ctrl+Alt+Del keys, because I'm sure we'll need them?
