As per a senior executive, Nokia’s much awaited Windows phones could well sport ST-Ericsson chips. Nokia is to use ST-Ericsson as one of its two chip suppliers if we can believe what a board member of ST-Ericsson told Forbes. Nokia seems to maintain a good relationship with ST-Ericsson.

The Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm has been the most dominant chip in Windows Mobile handsets thanks to Microsoft’s desire to offer consistency on new handsets. The software giant however declared sometime earlier that it will become a bit more lenient as to which chipset it is going to use/support in future.

The deal with Nokia and the huge investment to make a mobile phone platform base clearly indicate how vital mobile phone market is for the software giant. Moreover, given the fact that Google’s Android OS is going great guns and Apple is making newer strides, MS had to get serious with its Windows phone OS.

And the partnership with Nokia will surely help Microsoft’s cause. Let’s see how far things go and how it helps them both.
