It's a sad day for 3G junkies out there hoping to get the hookup from Intel and Nokia in their next laptop: the two companies have decided to nix plans to put a Nokia HSDPA chip inside forthcoming Intel laptops. Apparently Nokia and Intel are still buddy buddy, they just couldn't see HSDPA working out for them. Nokia spokesperson Eija-Riitta Huovinen says "The decision was made together ... for very pragmatic reasons. We did not see there was enough for the business case." Sounds like they just didn't seem to think the dollars were there, and we really can't blame 'em -- though we'll never forgive them for breaking our hearts.
