Qualcomm Working on Windows Phone Roadmap With Nokia

Because of Android and iOS devices are packing faster and faster dual-core processors (and quad-cores are on their way), many believe that single-core CPUs on Windows Phones are outdated and “just not enough”, even if they deliver the same level of user experience to say the least.

Enrico Salvatori, president of Qualcomm CDMA technologies in Europe, told TechRadar that the company is “working on a roadmap (with Nokia) and not a single device, a single launch. It’s an important collaboration for Qualcomm, so we are very excited about working together.” This could very well mean that Microsoft, OEMs and chip makers are preparing to join the multi-core game.

The Nokia collaboration is also very much about the Windows Phone ecosystem and, of course, we at Qualcomm, as you know, are supporting on our platform the Windows Phone software and actually at the moment we are the only supplier supporting the integrated solution“, he added. Of course, we already know that Nokia has a deal in place with ST Ericsson for future Windows Phones which means that Qualcomm will no longer be in a monopoly position.
