Intel is adding one more item to its menu of dishes for wireless cell 
phone makers.

The company confirmed on Tuesday that the code name for the "Internet on 
a chip" processor it's been working on since last year is "Manitoba" and 
that it plans to announce the chip in 2002.

Manitoba integrates flash memory, a digital signal processor, and an 
XScale processor core onto a single chip. It will be targeted at cell 
phone makers developing products for high-speed wireless networks, such 
as GPRS (General Pack Radio Service) networks. Manitoba will help in the 
development of phones that let users wirelessly access the Web and play 
audio files, as well as make basic phone calls. --Richard Shim, Special
