Marvell sees a home for their chips in Chinese low cost Windows Phones

Marvell_ArmadaDailytech.com has interviewed Jack Kang, director of Marvell’s applications processor business unit, and reports the company is very interested in Windows Phone and Windows 8.

“If there’s Windows Phones in China, there will probably be Windows Phones with Marvell in China.” he said.

Kang feels his firm’s biggest strength is providing “quality low-cost devices” and also expected to ship ARM-based Windows 8 laptops in Q4 2012. “Microsoft already said Windows 8 will run on ARM. And we build ARM devices, so….”

Marvell used to be a division of Intel before spinning off in 2006 and has found its processors recently mainly in Blackberry smartphones.  Its flagship processor is currently the 40 nm ARMADA processor, which does come in dual core configurations with an emphasis on low cost and which has found a home in the One Laptop Per Child initiative.
