Some Nokia Windows Phones Sporting Dual-Core ST-Ericsson U8500

May 20, 2011 No Comments

So far Qualcomm is the only chipset found inside of Windows Phones. When Nokia manufactured Windows phones come into play early next year (hopefully sooner than that) we will actually see chipsets provided by ST-Ericsson which has been struggling as of late as Qualcomm has taken over.

Recently, in an interview with Forbes, Carlo Bozotti, the Chief Executive of STMicroelectronics had a bit to say about their chipsets and Nokia Windows Phone

  • ST-Ericsson will be one of two chip suppliers for Nokia Windows Phone (the
    other is Qualcomm)
  • Nokia is planning on having 12 Windows Phone devices in 2012
  • The first ST-Ericsson chipset to be used will be the U8500 “,,,a
    sophisticated dual-core system-on-a-chip that can also be found in the new
    Samsung Infuse 4G smartphone on AT&T and the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G.”
  • Later versions of the U8500 will be used in Nokia’s 2012 phones
  • ST-Ericsson continues to have “very close relations” with Nokia

In the Forbes interview Carlo Bozotti says that

‘ST-Ericsson continues to have “very close relations” with Nokia, said Bozotti, and will be “an important supplier” for Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 phones.’

Hopefully he is just confused as to what the Mango update really is… Windows Phone 7.5 or he is just looking that far ahead.

Update: Looks like they were speaking mostly about Windows Phone 8 as Nokia confirms that Qualcomm will be behind their first Windows Phones
