The Nokia/Microsoft partnership keeps pressing on as Nokia selects ST-Ericsson's NovaThor platform to run their new Windows Phones. This new deal will enable Nokia to sell their phones at lower price points in new geographies. We haven't heard what phones will run this new NovaThor platform, but we will be sure to inform you once the information is released.
ST-Ericsson’s Chief Executive Gilles Delfassy said the deal between Nokia and ST-Ericsson is for Nokia phones running Windows Phone 8. This means we will not see NovaThor powered phones in the near future.
