Nokia to Use Qualcomm's Chips for Mobile Devices for North America

Nokia and Qualcomm will work together to develop advanced UMTS mobile devices, initially for North America. The companies intend for the devices to be based on S60 software on Symbian OS and Qualcomm's advanced Mobile Station Modem (MSM) MSM7xxx-series and MSM8xxx -series chipsets. The first mobile devices based on this collaboration are expected to launch in mid-2010 and be compatible with the forthcoming Symbian Foundation platform.

"Nokia is very pleased to be in discussions with Qualcomm around designing mobile devices that can benefit from the high level of integration found on MSM chipsets," said Kai Oistamo, executive vice president, Devices, Nokia. "We are eager to demonstrate to the industry the possibilities that exist when innovative and open software is combined with advanced hardware solutions."
