Posted: 03-Feb-2001 [Source: CNET]

[With the cell phone market bigger than the PC market, the competition is fierce in the race to be the Microsoft of wireless.]

by Corey Grice, Ben Charny -- "Everyone wants to rule the wireless kingdom. "Big-name technology makers, including Qualcomm, Motorola, Sun Microsystems, Nokia, Microsoft--and even chip giant Intel--are looking to become to wireless devices what Windows is to the PC: a universal standard for software developers.

"With projections of a multibillion dollar future, many reating a new revenue source even if sales of cell phone handsets--the most commonly used wireless device--slip.

"In the 1980s, Microsoft and Intel established dominance in the personal computer market with the Windows operating system and Intel's line of processors. The winner in the wireless standards battle, analysts say, could wind up as the next "Wintel."
