Intel Corp. and Compaq Computer Corp. will partner to support development of wireless Internet-access devices and applications, the companies announced.

As part of the agreement, Compaq will support the Intel Personal Internet Client Architecture (PCA), Intel's blueprint for building both third generation (3G) wireless devices and software for combining voice and Internet access, the companies said in a statement. Compaq will also offer its iPaq PocketPC, which is based on Intel's StrongARM processor, as a reference platform in Intel PCA developers kits, the companies said.

The partnership follows a similar development announcement Intel made Tuesday with Symbian Ltd. Symbian and Intel said they will team up to recruit developers for Intel's PCA architecture on Symbian's OS.
