British Telecom is joining Intel - now there's a marriage made in heaven - to create mobile devices based on the chip maker's upcoming comms-oriented system-on-a-chip.

The chip - codenamed Banias - will form a key part of Intel's Personal Client Architecture, which BT is backing.

BT's input will be to develop infrastructure systems, such as workgroup collaboration code and, interestingly, peer-to-peer file sharing, into which PCA-based mobile devices will connect and co-operate.

"We'll develop systems which allow things on mobile phones that are not currently possible,'' a BT spokesman said, according to Reuters. "It will make it possible to give a computer presentation to be displayed on people's handheld computers which may be in different countries."

The systems will be designed to operate across wireless LANs as well as wider GPRS cellular networks. ®
