Intel exec: 2 iPhones at WWDC, larger one with Atom processor [updated]

Speaking at an Intel event in Munich, Intel Germany CEO Hannes Schwaderer has said that Apple will unveil two different iPhone devices (Translated link) at its Worldwide Developer Conference, according to ZDNet.de. One model is said to have a larger form factor, a 720×480 screen, and an Intel Atom chip as its main processor, while the other is reportedly similar in size to the current iPhone, but with 3G capabilities. Schwaderer said that the Atom-powered version of the iPhone would be larger not due to the chip’s size, but due to its use of the higher-resolution screen. Apple CEO Steve Jobs will make his keynote address to kick-off WWDC at 10:00 a.m. on June 9. [via Mac Rumors]

Update: Intel has issued a disclaimer (Translated link) regarding Schwaderer’s remarks, saying the CEO made “only general remarks about possible mobile Internet DEVICE (MIDs) and did not speculate upon future iPhone models,” adding that the iPhone was only mentioned as an example of such a device. Intel press spokesman Mike Cato told ZDNet.de, “Intel knows nothing about future products of other manufacturers and can therefore about it also nothing say.”
