It sounds a bit odd that Apple would have to "consider" Intel for anything -- you know, considering that it provides the processors
for the Mac lineup and all -- but according to DigiTimes
, Cupertino could be looking Intel's way for a future iPhone platform. Granted, this rumor is indeed one of the weaker ones we've seen, and it's no secret that Apple tends to shift from vendor to vendor in order to keep costs down, but it's being reported that the firm could be "considering developing an iPhone" based on the Moorestown
platform. Make of that what you will, but at least we know it's not likely to be called the iPhone Extreme
if it does indeed materialize in due time.
