Paul Otellini ‘Intel Has Processor Running Windows 8 into Phones’

During Intel’s latest financials conference call, CEO Paul Otellini discussed plans to put Windows 8 onto phones. He did say Windows 8 … in fact he was very clear about it:

The plus for Intel is that as they unify their operating systems we now have the ability for the first time: one, to have a designed-from-scratch, touch-enabled operating system for tablets that runs on Intel that we don’t have today. And secondly, 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. And I look at that as an upside opportunity for us.

If Microsoft can solve the power issues and drop the heavy compatibility burden that comes with the OS Windows 8 might work on mobile devices. But where does this leave Microsoft brand spanking new Windows Phone 7 OS? You remember, that OS that got a big launch a little while ago? The one Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer spent a lot of time talking about at CES? Yeah, that one. Kinda soon for a partner to be talking about another mobile OS, isn’t it?

Also, where does this leave consumers who’ve parted with cash and given the OS a chance? And let’s not forget the developers.
