Microsoft Taps ARM Arsenal

As part of its energized mobile push, Redmond is getting close to chip maker ARM.

Microsoft has what's called an "architectural license," which gives Microsoft access to ARM's chip innards.

ARM is also used in the iPhone, and Microsoft clearly wants to level this particular playing field. Rumor has it that Microsoft may use ARM as the basis of a tablet, just like Apple did with its ARM-based iPad. Good luck with all that!
