    Techonline reports on a chip level teardown of the iPhone, identifying the various componenets it is made up of.


    Many of the chips are Apple branded components, making their exact identification more difficult.

    It just amazes me how much crap they crammed into it.

    Balda did a bang up job with the screen on my SE K800i. Still not a single scratch after riding in my pocket with keys and God knows what else.

    EDITED - I'm wrong about this. See below.

    If I understand correctly, the Marvell 88w8686 WLAN chip they show here supports 3G protocols like HSDPA/UMTS - AT&T's 3g network.

    Where did you find that info? I only read that it was designed to be used in 3g phones!

    EDIT: Those Bluecore chips have some EDR standard that I don't really know about.

    Looks like I'm incorrect about that - it actually seems to be a WiFi a/b/g chip targeted at 3G+ handsets... I think I just got that one dead wrong...

    The actual GSM/EDGE bits are the Infineon parts. Sorry if I got y'all excited.

    I read in the Dallas paper that investors wanted to know what brand the components were.. as a matter of fact the day the info came out ALL of the brands on the inside went up in the stock market, Except apple lol:confused:

    These all confirm my view that the iPhone is in reality a mac that happens to handle phone calls.

    Welcome to the super computer running Mac OS X in your pocket -- the future of computing/consumer device.
