Intel abandons Centrino 3G support

Intel has abandoned plans to add 3G wireless connectivity to its next Centrino platform codenamed Santa Rosa.

The chipmaker said in September that it planned to embed Nokia networking cards to deliver HSDPA access to notebook computers.

The decision to abandon the plans means that notebook users will have to rely on Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity, or purchase a separate networking card.

Intel claimed that including the wireless chips is too expensive, but suggested that it might do so at a later time.
