Barence writes “Intel boss Paul Otellini says his company plans to offer Windows 8 on smartphones — putting the chipmaker on a collision course with Microsoft. Speaking during Intel’s earnings call, Otellini said Microsoft’s decision to port Windows to system-on-a-chip platforms had advantages for his company. ‘We have the ability to put our lowest-power Intel processors running Windows 8 – or “next-generation Windows” – into phones, because it’s the same OS stack.’ That would appear to run contrary to Microsoft’s plans for its OSes. Speaking at CES last week, Windows chief Steven Sinofsky said Windows Phone 7 was ‘uniquely focused on small form factor’ while Windows was designed for tablets and above.”
