It has been learnt that Nokia is building new Windows Phone devices which shall tout dual-core ST-Ericsson Chips. These dual core ST-Ericsson chips will be the powerhouse in the new Nokia Windows Phones.
Nokia will release around four of its Windows Phone devices later this year when Windows Phone 7.5 a.k.a Mango rolls out. It has also been indicated that future Nokia Windows Phones may also contain processors from ST-Ericsson.
The first Nokia Windows Phone device will have a U8500 ST-Ericsson chipset. The same chipset has already been seen in the market on devices such as the Samsung Infuse 4G and Sidekick 4G. The chip in question here, is a dual-core system on a chip or SoC.
New Nokia Windows Phone devices will mean that the Finnish company is going to put Microsoft’s signature mobile platform out in the hands of millions of people who look for relatively cheaper devices. Nokia enjoys great market presence in that particular arena.
The first Nokia Windows Phone device is apparently codenamed “W” and will probably be released later this year. We really do want to see what Nokia comes out with.
More on that, as it develops.
