ONDON, Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Qualcomm Incorporated announced today that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon™ mobile processors power the first Nokia Lumia smartphones, the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Nokia Lumia 710.

This marks Nokia’s entrance into the Windows Phone ecosystem and is the latest step in the mobile industry’s high-speed transition towards mobile computing.  The Snapdragon processor’s unique engineering enabled Nokia to substantially accelerate the time to market of the products.

“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 optimization for Windows Phone 7, as well as the efforts of two strong teams, delivered these great devices.”

The Snapdragon S2 class of processors provides a best-in-class mobile experience, including 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.”

As one of the largest providers of wireless chipset and software technology in the industry, Qualcomm has one of the most diverse chipset and software product portfolios spanning multiple device classes.  Specifically, the S2 processors are optimized to enable HD videos in the browser, a rich gaming experience, top-quality pictures and video.
