Intel's 802.11n WiFi chipset will be unveiled next Tuesday, which is a lot earlier than the originally planned Q2 launch.
Kedron is the wireless component and was intended to be introduced in tandem with the new mobile chipset code-named "Santa Rosa" in Q2 of this year. Kedron will be based on the draft-n wireless standard and promises to increase data transfer bandwidth as well as range of wireless devices.

Kedron has been shipping to vendors for a while (we reported about the FCC approval of the chipset back in November of 2006), which suggests that Intel will actually be able to show Kedron in available products next week. Kedron will be officially named "WiFi Link 4965 AGN". There will be a Kedron part without draft-n capability ("WiFi Link 4965 AG") as well.
