Intel and Nokia announce chipset and open source development relationship

10 July 2009

Intel and Nokia have recently announced a long-term strategic relationship to develop a new class of Intel Architecture-based mobile computing device and chipset architectures and to collaborate on several open source mobile Linux software projects.

Intel will also acquire a Nokia HSPA/3G modem IP license for use in future products.

"This Intel and Nokia collaboration unites and focuses many of the brightest computing and communications minds in the world, and will ultimately deliver open and standards-based technologies," said Anand Chandrasekher, Intel Corporation senior vice president and general manager, Ultra Mobility Group.

Intel and Nokia's cooperation in open source software initiatives will aim to develop common technologies for use in the Moblin and Maemo platform projects, which will deliver Linux-based operating systems for these future mobile computing devices.

The companies are coordinating their Open Source technology selection and development investments, including alignment on a range of key open source technologies for Mobile Computing such as: oFono, ConnMan, Mozilla, X.Org, BlueZ, D-BUS, Tracker, GStreamer, and PulseAudio.
