Digging in the latest iPhone 2.0 beta version, the ZiPhone team has spotted some references that suggest that Apple will use the Infineon S-GOLD3 chip in its upcoming 3G iPhone.
The Infineon S-GOLD3 (PMB8878) chip supports 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity, support for cameras up to 5MP, support for SD cards and DVB-H module support. Like its predecessor, the S-GOLD2, it comes with video acceleration and media playback capabilities. The processor speed remains unchanged.
Meanwhile, Walt Mossberg is now saying that he has no idea when Apple will release its 3G iPhone. He explains that his comment that the iPhone was coming within the next 60 days is speculation based on rumours currently floating about.
