"The world's biggest semiconductor company Intel Corp. will supply 250,000 Web access devices that Spain's biggest bank, Banco Santander Central Hispano , is set to offer to clients with America Online Inc. , which Intel and others hope could jump-start the nascent industry."

"...The Dot.Station, which is a blue color similar to the one Intel uses in its logo, runs the Linux operating system and uses a Mozilla Web browser. It is among several consumer-oriented devices Intel now sells, in addition to digital cameras, an MP3 digital music player, a digital microscope and home networking equipment."

"The deal to offer Web terminals to Banco Santander's 10 million customers was part of a larger partnership between AOL and the bank. Both companies also agreed to take over a Spanish leisure portal, rebrand it AOL Avant and offer AOL-branded services to Banco Santanders banking clients."
