Intel spokesman: no larger Atom iPhone

Fscklog, a German blog that covers Apple, says that Intel’s “confirmation” of an Atom-based, larger iPhone is no such thing.

“Intel’s press spokesman Mike Cato made clear to me that the statement made by Intel Germany’s CEO Hannes Schwaderer is not to be taken as such. Rather, Intel (in this case is Mr. Schwaderer) said the iPhone has been, for a long time, an example of the entire category of Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs)”

Thanks to BBG reader Rudi for spotting the update.

Update: ZDNet.de, the source of the original claim, says that the man was using the word “iPhone” to refer to mobile internet devices in general. We guessed this yesterday, and look forward to the trademark shenanigans that result when people do this.

Nein (translation) [fscklog]

    I have a feeling a hundred million dollars of Apple’s and Intel’s money is already winging its way to their lawyers. Good fun.
