Nokia goes for the Atom

Written by Nick Farell

Rumors of announcements
The dark satanic rumour mill has manufacturered a hell on earth rumour which claims that Nokia will start shoving Atom chips under the bonnet of its smart phones.

A Finnish website, Prosessori claims that the Nokia N9 will feature Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.2GHz. The website also claims that the Nokia N9 will feature the same 12 mega-pixel camera as Nokia N8.

This Smartphone will also feature a front-facing camera and a slide out QWERTY keyboard. Apparently the news is based on a leak of what the former rubber maker would be showing off at Mobile World Congress 2011, which is to be held at Barcelona next month.

No words on its pricing yet, as well as all the above details haven’t been confirmed by the company either. We would think that the Atom would probably eat a lot of battery and generate a fair bit of heat.

Wrong choice !

They should choose AMD Zacate instead of ATOM !

I have a hard time believing this. The least power hungry 1.2 ghz atom is Z515 with a 1.4W TDP, but for a mobile phone it needs to be in 100mW to 300mW range.
Doesn't make sense.

Those idiots probably misread some leaked documents... the only Atom Nokia put out and might upgrade is in their Netbook, nothing else and certainly not a hand-held phone.
