Intel might produce an x86 Windows Phone as company seeks engineers familiar with the platform
financial one. Judging from the job ad, it seems that Intel has decided to at least move forward.
Right now, besides Motorola, ZTE and Lenovo are putting Intel inside (see what we did there?) a small portion of their Android smartphones, but these are for models sold in Europe and China. The Intel Atom is said to out-benchmark ARM supported silicon in performance and battery life, and that could give manufacturers a valid reason to broaden the use of Intel inside Android phones.

A true Windows 8 phone? That would be awesome, but expensive.

it would be nice to see intel WP devices...but as long as MSFT's restriction that only qualcomm chips are allowed this is still in the dreamyard!
i mean why microsoft allown manufacturer to use qualcomm's snapdragon and nvidia's tegra chips on windows RT while on WP they dont, only qualcomm's? MSFT should not have too many restrictions since WP can be license and manufacturers cant have that much of differentiation with WP!

There is good reason for some restrictions. Minimal.fragmentation and unified experiences across all devices of the system.

Oh, that would be so cool!
More AMD and Intel presence.in the mobile market would be wonderful.

To gain traction among wp users...Intel should make phone with specs seen in androids. Like 5 or 6 inch 1080p display, quad core cpu, 2gb ram...12 mp camer

I dont understand the gaga over the 1080P phones..do we actually require that...I dont require them..but enjoying it, because that will drive down the cost of 720P mobile phones
