ST-Ericsson has been chosen as supplier for Nokia's future Windows Phone smartphones. The information is official and confirmed by the ST-Ericsson CEO himself.
It is yet to be announced if Nokia will choose some of the existing ST-Ericsson NovaThor chipsets or something completely new.
It is clear though that Qualcomm will cease to be the exclusive manufacturer of Windows Phone chipsets.
Currently ST-Ericsson has three popular mobile platforms - the U5500, U8500 and U9500. All three of them pack dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processors, NEON CPU extensions, ARM Mali 400 graphic cores and LP-DDR2 RAM.
