Nokia and Intel have forged an alliance to develop a new breed of Intel Architecture-based mobile devices. Their collaboration, according to the press release announcing the partnership, will go beyond just smartphones and generic mobile devices; the two
companies want their partnership to run the entire gamut of Mobile Internet Devices and embedded systems.
This partnership is a huge shot in the arm for Intel - which has been waiting for its chance to gain real traction in the mobile phone market - as it has found a huge customer for its mobile chipsets in the form of Nokia. Intel has also agreed to acquire a Nokia HSPA/3G modem IP license from Nokia. On the software front, they have resolved to give a push to open-source mobile Linux software projects.
