ZDNet Germany is reporting that Intel head Hannes Schwaderer said that an upcoming iPhone will have an Atom processor and a larger screen. I’m calling bullshit.
I don’t care if you’re the head of the Yakuza — you don’t talk about iPhone unless Steve is sitting on your shoulders and controlling your mouth with wires.
The new screen is rumored to be 720 x 480 pixels which is a bit more widescreen than the current 480×320. My biggest problem, however, is that this was said by an Intel head in Germany at some Intel event. This isn’t exactly the burning bush on Mount Olympus. It could happen, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
UPDATE – Just noticed my pixel error but I think this shows you that given a constant pixel density the new iPhone probably won’t be four times as big as the old one.
