HP to use Broadcom chips in notebooks

Chipmaker Broadcom said Monday that notebook maker Hewlett-Packard is using its 802.11g wireless chips in Compaq Presario 2100 and 2500 notebooks. Other HP notebooks use Wi-Fi chips from Atheros, and from Intel through its Centrino bundles of chips.

In related news, the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is working to finalize the 802.11g Wi-Fi specification and so establish a standard. The group has said it expects to have an 802.11g standard ready in July.
