Nokia can use Nvidia Tegra for Computational Photography and Softmodem
Nokia should not just use Qualcomm chips for WP. It can use Nvidia Tegra 4 and optimize some Lumia for gaming and computational photography and leverage its expertise in wireless for software modem.
The 41Mpixel and Carl Zeiss lens is just laughable. It is just buying an expensive component and putting it in.
Nvidia graphics, gaming, and photo processing hardware is very strong. Just check out their investor day webcast. They are weak in communications but implemented an LTE modem into their chip. What Nokia can do is to leverage its communications expertise, and also work on the camera. This will be a differentiated super phone that white box manufacturer cannot match.
It's obvious that NOK wants to use Intel chips for tablets if it will go that route. INTC isn't going to be out with their new tablet chip until late August to September.
INTC is also coming out with their Merryfield (or whatever it is called) for cellphones at the end of this year. One feature of their chip will be compatibility with most LTE 4G networks. It would also provide a wider use of software compatibility.
Anybody here ever talk about NOK trading one joint venture for another? Now ending their networks JV and doing a device joint venture with MSFT?
