Microsoft To Help Nokia Lower Their Prices On Smartphones

Posted Feb 18, 2011

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said that one of the talking points he made with Microsoft about their strategic points is to offer competitive prices for smartphones. So far Microsoft has had tight hardware requirements for handsets using their software, which is causing their prices to be higher. Microsoft is now planning to open their mobile platform to other chipset suppliers and not just Qualcomm anymore. [Reuters]
