Hmmm Which processor does Iphone 3G Use?
Speculation rounds happen in the internet when there is a launch of a really good product or when there is a product of great value, technology and come from a company that previously gave the world a masterpiece product.
So when Apple is about to debut its next-gen 3G phone, all eyes and rumor mills would surround what would be its actual spec sheet unless Apple itself releases it.
This time around it is about the processor in the iPhone 3G. A research note from JoAnne Feeney at FTN Midwest indicates that Apple’s next iPhone may very well be powered by a processor from Intel’s new Atom family of low-cost, low-power processors. Intel is reportedly “well ahead” in their development schedule for the Atom family of processors.
So if this is true, we could see more than 32 million Intel Atom powered I phone 3g. But it is a rumor as Intel is well far ahead in terms of releasing it and they are most likely to debut in the Intel Developers Forum in mid-August of this year. That would put Atom in line for applications in the next I phone development cycle – likely aimed for a 2009 or 2010 launch. Of course, this is all speculation at this point.
So maybe an Intel powered I phone is not light years away but just a year or 2 maybe.
