Apple iPhone Components? No Intel Chip.

Despite Apple's introduction of the iPhone, few hardware details of the device were revealed. One analyst produced a list of likely vendors for the parts that go into the iPhone. The list is as follows:

Samsung Electronics (applications/video processor), Marvell (802.11), Infineon Technologies (baseband), Broadcom Corp. (touch screen controller), and Cambridge Silicon Radio (Bluetooth)


Of interest, the CPU of the iPhone was never explicitly mentioned by Apple, but Intel has flatly denied that it is producing the processor for the iPhone. Buzz around the Macworld floor has suggested that a Samsung ARM processor is at the heart of the device.
