Qualcomm gears up for next Windows OS

Agam Shah | March 2, 2011
Qualcomm on Tuesday said it is stepping up its software efforts as its chips begin supporting more operating systems, including Microsoft's upcoming Windows OS, which will be targeted at mobile devices, tablets and PCs.

The next version of Windows is also targeted at PCs, opening the door for Qualcomm to enter the PC market. But Chandhok said that Qualcomm will retain its focus on mobility, and has no plans to go into the PC market.

Qualcomm's competitor Nvidia is also developing chips that will run the upcoming version of Windows. Nvidia is developing a CPU code-named Project Denver for PCs, servers and supercomputers.
