Intel Throws Its Hat In the Ring!

Intel is “IN.” They said they would get in and boy are they! If Intel takes their Atom Processor and some beefed up software into the mobile phone market, Nokia and Intel might have something to gain.

This could take mobile technology to the next level. What if your PHONE instead of your UMPC were your laptop replacement?

Intel and Nokia team up on ‘new mobile platform’ – Jun. 23, 2009

Under the agreement announced on Tuesday, Intel will buy intellectual property from Nokia related to high-speed wireless technology and the companies also said they plan to collaborate on open-source mobile Linux software projects.

They did not give a specific timeline for the development of products but said they expect “many innovations to result from this collaboration over time.”

The companies said they aimed to define “a new mobile platform beyond today’s smartphones, notebooks and netbooks” for hardware, software and mobile Internet services.

Intel (INTC, Fortune 500) already sells chips for netbooks, a type of no-frills laptop computer, and Nokia (NOK) has said it would look into the possibly of expanding beyond phones to develop netbooks.
