A report in Canada’s National Post says that BlackBerry maker, Research in Motion, is in talks with Intel, the worlds largest chip maker to offer the Centrino chip in future versions of BlackBerry devices.

A RIM spokesperson declined to comment on the report, however the partnership would make sense for both companies.  Even though RIM doesn’t yet offer the volumes that would normally attract the likes of Intel, they are a dominant player in the handheld market, a market that Intel has had trouble entering.  The low-power Centrino chip would, of course make it easier for RIM to build Wi-Fi capabilities into future versions of the BlackBerry.
