    Why not go Android?
    Anyways, I'd like to see an Intel phone but as they said late last year they have a lot of catching up to do in the market segment they compete with ARM in.

    I am sure that a few years ago my PDA was running on an Intel processor which obviously wasn't x86 but is was definitely in the market they are trying to get into now. Assuming that Intel stopped making the processor it seems to have been a rather bad decision.

    I repeat, no CPU will make any Symbian based phone decent to use. I'm now using a Android G1 and after a year of using a N95 i'd never go back.

    Seems mad that Nokia would sign with someone who has already admitted they have a long way of playing catch-up yet, as perplekks also mentioned.

    I repeat, no CPU would make WM a reliable and decent in any way choice. Symbian works faster, is a breeze to use and is far more reliable. As you see, pointless discussion.

    I stil can't see anything Intel could bring into mobile phone market. x86 is outdated, ARM is faster, uses less power and is perfectly suited for smartphones. Intel can only bring anti-competitive practices, high prices and high energy usage. I used nokia smartphones (for me and my company) for many years now, but I see that it's about to change.

    Since when was x86 outdated? And since when was and ARM chip faster, only thing faster is x64 (if you count that as different)? There aren't any x86 (or x64) phones because the power draw is too high, not because it is outdated or too slow. If ARM was faster then the fastest desktop processor on the planet wouldn't be an x64 Core i7 2600K.
