Nokia works with Intel on custom x86 silicon, to ditch TI/ARM?
Nokia and Intel hosted a joint press conference at World Mobile Congress in Barcelona, Spain. During the conference, they were mostly talking about services and the new operating system. From the feedback gathered, majority of journalists and analysts were dismayed at the lack of any hardware announcement.
However, that is in the works. According to information we acquired from trusted sources, Nokia is much more than Intel's customer. The company wants to develop custom silicon based on x86 architecture and drive the x86 instruction set across the board, from tablets and netbooks to it's bread and butter, smartphones and phones. Intel is certainly satisfied with this development, given that Nokia manufactures just bit below half a billion phones a year and well, sells more phones in a week than Apple and Palm sell combined in a year [smartphone ratio would be one month of Nokia sales for whole year of Apple and Palm combined].
