Nokia, Intel Annouce Joint R&D Collaboration



Intel and Nokia have announced a long-term strategic technology partnership that will, the companies say, define how they see mobile communications developing in the future as they build new types of mobile devices. At this early stage, there are products in the pipeline -- or at least none that they will discuss.

The relationship is based on three legs of a proverbial stool:

  • Intel architecture and chipsets
  • Moblin, the open source Linux software stack and framework that initially targets Intel's Atom processor that's being used in MIDs, netbooks/nettops, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), and embedded systems.
  • 3G technology developed by Nokia to be licensed by Intel.

According to Anand Chandrasekher, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Ultra Mobility Group, this is the "most significant collaboration in our respective industries", those industries being computing (Intel) and communications (Nokia). Initially the partners will move forward in joint R&D efforts with the long-term goal of building new open standard mobile computing platforms.
