Don't you just love the weekend before a Stevenote? It's the time when the finger comes out of the dyke and leaks become a flood, then a monsoon.
This time Engadget has the skinny. They got a peek inside the iPhone 3G firmware and it shares a lot of detail about the phone's chipset and various antennae:
- Infineon PMB6952 / S-GOLD3 six-band UMTS / HSDPA transceiver
- Murata LMRX3JCA-479 tri-band amplifier (we're assuming for the 3G)
- Sony SP9T antenna switch for GSM / UMTS dual mode
- ARM 1176JZF-S - Main CPU (same as in 1st gen iPhone)
- Skyworks 77427 chip - UMTS / HSDPA tx 1900MHz, rx 2100MHz
- Skyworks 77414 chip - UMTS / HSDPA 1900MHz
- Skyworks 77413 chip - UMTS / HSDPA 850MHz
