WSJ writes about the battle for the wireless Internet:
Both companies are racing to develop new technologies to better permit consumers to connect wirelessly to the Web, whether by cellphone, laptop, handheld gadget — or potentially even devices such as MP3 players and video cameras.
Whoever prevails in the face-off, consumers will end up with yet more options to connect to the Web. Today, they mostly rely on wired high-speed Internet connections from cable and phone companies. While the technologies Intel and Qualcomm are pushing are still untested on a large scale, they promise to give people new ways to get online at work, in the backyard, in a park — almost anywhere — and eventually with a whole array of new devices.
