The deal could help Nokia's smartphone business

A new deal between Nokia and Intel could mean the company's latest phones are even more like personal computers.

Following the recent launch of the Nokia N97, which went head-to-head with the Apple iPhone 3G last week when both were released on Friday, the firm has announced it has extended its partnership with the group.

As creators of the processing technology that can be found in most PC, laptop and Mac systems, Intel is well placed to help the mobile phone maker move forward.

In fact, Intel is said to be working on a new "architecture-based mobile computing device and chipset […] which will combine the performance of powerful computers with high-bandwidth mobile broadband communications".

Other projects expected to benefit from the deal include a number of open source mobile Linux software developments.

When it was announced in December last year, Nokia said the N97 would be "the world's most advanced mobile computer".
