CNN claims a 3G iPhone will be launched by mid-year. The article also mentions the phone will feature chips from Infineon:
German chipmaker Infineon Technologies AG (IFX) likely will be supplying the new systems solution to Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) next-generation iPhone, UBS analysts told clients in a note published Thursday.
The broker said this isn't yet the consensus view and could be a positive catalyst for the stock. UBS also believes that 3G-enabled iPhones will be released by mid-year, and that the current EDGE iPhone platform is being ramped down earlier than expected to "clean" inventories.
