Don't Talk To Your PC--Talk Through It

If Intel has its way, Web surfers will spend more time talking viatheir computers than on the phone. The chipmaker is set to announce a deal in which Internet telephony vendor ITXC will incorporate Intel's Internet Telephony voice-over-IP software into its webtalkNow service, through which businesses can embed a Web link that users can click to talk to a company representative.

Intel's hope: A more user-friendly Net will stimulate demand for Intel-powered desktops and servers. By virtue of its clout, Intel could help bring voice-over-IP services to the masses. "We're talking about a real heavyweight that has the power to drive the development of this market," says John Cha, a Frost & Sullivan analyst.

Company execs say they expect Intel's Internet Telephony software to be in commercial use by this summer. The deal with ITXC is nonexclusive.
