Windows Phone's share of the smartphone market is underwhelming at the moment, but the OS is worth watching, said Hermann Eul, President of Intel's Mobile Communications Group, during an interview with the IDG News Service at the Computex 2012 trade show in Taiwan.
Intel will consider putting Windows Phone OS on x86 depending on how the OS does in the market in the future.
"We would be [interested] when we see that this market has a good chance to return our money that we have invested into this," Eul said. "Our roadmap has devices that can support Windows also on phones. So we can do that. The hooks for doing that [are] there."
Intel is just getting started in the smartphone market.
