MediaTek unlikely to roll out chipset platforms supporting Windows Phone

MediaTek logoMediaTek is unlikely to roll out smartphone chipset platforms supporting Windows Phone in the short term as the Taiwan-based solution vendor has given the priority to ramp up its share in the 4G chipset segment in 2014, according to industry sources.

Having established an R&D team of over 10,000 members, MediaTek has been rapidly rolling out quad- and 8-core as well as 4G solutions, also plans to launch two 64-bit CPUs in the third quarter of 2014, said the sources.

MediaTek will also focus its efforts on 4G chips to cash in on the booming 4G smartphone market in China as well as 3G chips for China-based handset vendors, which are now shifting their focus to promote handset sales in overseas markets, added the sources.

MediaTek's conservative view toward the Windows Phone platform runs counter to rival Qualcomm, which has decided to launch QRD (Qualcomm Reference Design) smartphones for WP.

The first wave of WP-based smartphones built on QRD is expected to hit the market in the second half of 2014, said the sources.
