Considering the fact that competitor Apple is fast leaving Google and Microsoft behind in the microchips business, Google is now looking for partnership with reputable microchip makers to co-develop a set of chips that Google had personally designed, so that the company can be better positioned to compete shoulder-to-shoulder with Apple and others.

Apart from the business motive of leading the pack in its chip products, Google also wishes to achieve uniformity in the fragmented community of Android mobile phones, and make Android phones able to solve identified problems via its operating system just as Apple phones are doing.

Google representatives are reaching out to microchip makers and offering them the partnership of co-developing pre-designed chips, and this includes those for phone processors.

Google intends to implement certain new features in Android phones in coming years, and the chip designs would make this very possible considering the fact that Android software drives a lot of phone in the global market today.

Since all the major phone makers including Apple, Microsoft, and Google are at each other’s neck, the competition is very high and there is palpable fear when one of the party breaks through with a new technology that will give it a leading edge in the market.

Except Google reworks its chip components, the company is afraid its mobile operating system might not be able to properly compete with Apple products. Google is therefore not limiting the partnership to chips alone; this might also extend to application processors and cameras among others.
