Snapdragon powers Lumia
01 November 2011
Qualcomm has announced that its Snapdragon mobile processors power the first Nokia Lumia smartphones.
This marks Nokia’s entrance into the Windows Phone ecosystem and is the latest step in the mobile industry’s transition towards mobile computing. The Snapdragon processor’s engineering enabled Nokia to substantially accelerate the time to market of the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Nokia Lumia 710.
"We are proud that our deep collaboration with Nokia resulted in smartphones that were developed in only six months based on our Snapdragon platform," said Enrico Salvatori, Senior Vice President and President of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies Europe. “The level of integration in Snapdragon and the optimisation for Windows Phone 7, as well as the efforts of two strong teams, delivered these great devices."
The Snapdragon S2 class of processors provides users with high-performance mobile computing with prolonged battery life and next-generation graphics for Nokia’s Lumia phones. Lumia users will also experience rapid network connections and fast, responsive Web browsing.
“The collaboration between Nokia, Qualcomm and Microsoft has been extremely successful,” said Jo Harlow, head of Nokia’s Smart Devices business unit. “Qualcomm played a significant and very active role in helping develop the first Nokia Lumia smartphones, without which we would not have been able to bring the products to market so quickly.”
