qualcomm snapdragon Nokia netbooks to run on Qualcomms Snapdragon?Nokia has pinned Taiwan’s Foxxcon Electronics and Compal Electronics as likely manufacturing partners in its bid to enter the netbook market, reports Digitimes.  While the world’s number one cellphone maker typically outsources OEM orders for handsets, the company is reportedly considering a joint design manufacture strategy for netbooks.

Also interesting is news that Nokia is considering both Intel’s Atom and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon as potential processors for its netbooks.  While the Atom CPU dominates in the netbook space, the Snapdragon integrates GPS functionality which would mesh nicely with Nokia Maps and its Ovi services.
