Nokia To Use Qualcomm Chips In Upcoming Windows Phone Handsets

Nokia today said that upcoming Windows Phone models would utilize Qualcomm chips. The company was negotiating with several chipset suppliers before settling on Qualcomm. All upcoming Nokia Windows Phone devices will use the Qualcomm chips.

“The first Nokias based on Windows Phone will have the Qualcomm chipset,” said a Nokia spokesman.

“Our aim is to build a vibrant ecosystem around Nokia and the Windows Phone OS and with that intent we are naturally continuing discussions with a number of chipset suppliers for our future product portfolio,” he said.

Qualcomm is presently the only chipset that is supported on the current Windows Phone OS, but Microsoft is said to be looking into expanding the supplier base.
