Intel, the world’s largest chipmaker, will sell processors to Nokia, the world’s biggest mobile phone manufacturer. This looks like the most important breakthrough in Intel’s efforts to move into the mobile market, according to Bloomberg.
While over 80 percent of the world’s PCs run on Intel chips, the corporation has been striving to make headway in the mobile device market for a decade – with limited success and many false starts. Anand Chandrasekher, SVP of Intel’s ultra-mobility group, will provide more details of the Nokia deal later today. His division sells a pared-down version of a PC chip, known as Atom, that has been adapted for use in mobile devices.
