At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) this week in Taipei the company claimed that the iPhone is not capable of receiving the "full Internet."
Intel vice president of mobility Shane Wall teamed with colleague Pankaj Kedia, the chipmaker's ultra-mobility ecosystems director, in lambasting the iPhone as a device dependent on technology that's a full two to three years behind that which Intel can offer.
"If you want to run full internet, you're going to have to run an Intel-based architecture," Wall told the gathering of engineers. He said the "iPhone struggles" when tasked with running "any sort of application that requires any horse power."
Intel was promoting its upcoming Moorestown platform for next-generation mobile Internet devices (MIDs).
