Wonder how this will affect the SpringPort? From the press release:
Intel Corporation and Xircom, Inc. today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Intel, through a wholly owned subsidiary, would acquire Xircom for $25 per share in an all-cash tender offer valued at approximately $748 million. In addition, Intel will assume all existing vested and unvested employee options. The acquisition complements Intelís existing desktop PC and server-based network access businesses by enabling Intel to provide new products for notebook and mobile computing uses.
I just hope that "mobile computing" entails all handhelds, not just the Pocket PC. Thanks to Miradu2000 for the news.
