"The alliance is the third set-top deal that the chip maker has signed in as many months.

"Chip giant Intel Corp. announced on Tuesday that it would team with European phone maker Nokia to deliver an enhanced-TV-capable set-top box using the Linux operating system."

"The Nokia (NYSE:NOK) set-top will be based on Intel's PC architecture and will use an x86-based processor, the Linux operating system, and AOL's (NYSE:AOL) open-source Mozilla browser."

"At a very high level, Linux allows them more flexibility and faster innovation because they can control the product," she said. The Pacific Century Group will also use Linux as part of its broadband platform as well."
