Nokia has decided order more microchips from STMicro and Broadcom for its 3G chips.
According to Reuters, the chips it is buying are based on its own design and R&D. Although it will continue to develop its own modems it has decided that it is better free up Nokia's own research and development resources for other areas.
To balance becoming too dependant on outside chipset makers Nokia says that it will use a wide supplier base.
It wants to ship phones using Broadcom's EDGE chipset in the second half of 2008.
