If you thought Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC - message board) cranked the hype machine to maximum with the launch of its 802.16 silicon this week, be prepared for further headspin later this year when the silicon giant unveils its 3G chipset.

Speaking at the WLAN Event in London this week, Intel�s Scott Richardson, general manager of its broadband wireless solutions division, gave an insight into the company�s 3G ambitions.

�We invest more in 3G silicon than we do in WiMax right now,� he told conference delegates.

In February last year the vendor outlined its 3G market plans for a �dual mode W-CDMA solution,� codenamed "Hermon"

�The formal introduction and shipment of �Hermon� is on track for this year,� writes an Intel spokesman in an email note to Unstrung. In light of Intel�s marketing efforts with its WiMax chipset, Hermon looks set to be a Munster of a launch :) Read between the lines here, this indicates that EVDO will be built-in to the motherboard on PCs - WOW!
