Qualcomm CFO Bill Keitel speaking at Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom conference this week, said that Qualcommâ€™s effort on Windows Phone 7 is paying off as expected. He also said that Qualcomm is ready to support the huge volume of Windows Phone devices to be made by Nokia.
We stepped out some time ago with a major investment in high level operating system and porting to Microsoft was one of those. So weâ€™re the first to port the Win Mobile 7 and I think weâ€™re the only chip set provider yet today. That was a good year effort of hard work for us to get to that point. So you know, weâ€™re hoping Nokia and Microsoft will go fast here and weâ€™re ready to support them.
It was no small amount of risk we took of major dollars, major effort. And of course now that weâ€™re there our effort is going to be on improving it, improving the performance, expanding the portfolio which weâ€™ve ported Windows 7 to our chip sets. Hopefully weâ€™re ready to and Nokia is interested in a broad portfolio, high end to low end.
