For Intel this could be good news.

The incumbent SoC apps processor provider into the Lumia range is Qualcomm with its Snapdragon line. Intel may get a chance to win over some slots from a Microsoft-owned handset business.

But in some ways this is a negative indicator for both Windows Phone and Microsoft.

It seems like Nokia is saying Windows Phone is not an easy way to make money against the likes of Android and Apple and it would rather get out and do something different.

Or was this the end-game that was being worked towards even when Nokia adopted the Windows Phone platform in 2011?

Nokia had lost the smartphone wagon when the Finnish company sistematically rejected Android as an OS for its devices. Then, Nokia sold the Qt/Symbian bussiness too, inevitably linking its fate to Microsoft's mobile operating systems.

After, building the Surface tablet, this was the logical move for the Redmond guys. Maybe this is a new beginning for Microsoft, but... what shall Intel think about this?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
