Today Nokia and Intel announced their intended collaboration on open source software projects and that Intel will license Nokia's HSPA capable 3G modem intelectual property for use in future mobile products.
The two companies have announced that they plan to work together on Nokia's Maemo project and Intel's Moblin project. Maemo is the open source Linux system that powers Nokia's Internet Tablet product line, which includes the Nokia N810. Moblin is a Linux based system developed to run on Intel's low power Atom line of processors for mobile devices such as netbooks.
The official announcement made no mention of any future Nokia products using Intel processors, though the potential link is certainly there considering the two claim to be forming "a long-term relationship to develop a new class of Intel Architecture-based mobile computing device and chipset architectures which will combine the performance of powerful computers with high-bandwidth mobile broadband communications and ubiquitous Internet connectivity."
