We mentioned Intel’s new Atom line of procs earier, and there are rumors floating around Bloggerland that Apple will be among its first customers, using the chip in some sort of mobile Internet device.
Will it be iPhone 2? Maybe, but we’d expect a smaller, lighter almost-a-MacBook to be the likely product to first see the Atom.
And who knows, an iPhone with the Atom could happen. No reason multiple products can’t share the platform. I mean, we’ve been splitting the Atom since the 1940s.
Apple picks Atom for mobile devices [9-to-5 Mac, with apologies for the puns]
