Intel and Nokia announce strategic relationship to shape next era of Mobile Computing innovation

| June 23, 2009 | Reply

According to the latest Nokia Press Release >> click << Nokia have announced a long term partnership with Intel Corporation, which will include “several open source mobile Linux software projects”.

It seems they want to “create a new mobile platform beyond smartphones, notebooks and netbooks”. Perhaps the idea is that Nokia is fusing all three mobile platforms and truly bring to the world a real “mobile computer”; a pocketable smartphone sized device that’s powerful enough to rival your netbook/notebook’s capabilities.

Imagine getting the same FireFox experience as you would on the desktop? More and more, the services we are using can be contained within the browser instead of being stuck on the OS, e.g. creating word/excel documents and video/image editing.

For goodness sake though, if they make a pocketable device, please include voice GSM! I don’t want to see an uberly amazing internet tablet which could so easily have been a fantastic phone.
