    It's already a bit outdated (10 days) but I have not read it here this clearly:

    Sounds probable...

    Note that this doesn't mean previous comments about the iPhone using an ARM processor are untrue. ARM Plc. is a UK company who design processor architectures, earning revenue by licensing these designs to third parties. The Intel Xscale processor is a design licensed from ARM.

    Apple have an existing relationship with ARM - their processors have powered every iPod.

    Intel sold the Xscale line to Marvell a while back. It is though that perhaps they did this because they could make some variation of the core architecture for embedded devices like the phone.

    I still think it will be a Samsung ARM cpu, Apple have a big deal with them over flash ram anyway.
