Intel Wants Part in Windows 8 Phones

Microsoft made a bit of a stir announcing that Windows 8, or whatever it's called, will run as a system on chip (the OS is embedded) on the tablet and phone-friendly ARM chip family.

Intel wants it known that is won't give up this market easily, and likewise announced plans to build phones using Windows 8.

There are various conspiracy theories floating around, including the notion that Microsoft isn't happy with the Intel disclosure. But who wouldn't want two chip giants fighting over you?

Of course all this is just talk. Windows 7 is still just a toddler and Windows Phone 7 is an infant. It's going to be a while till we see this battle develop.
