First we heard that Intel was working with competitors to take on the iPhone. Now Apple is reportedly considering using Intel's Moorestown mobile Internet device (MID) platform processors to create a new version of the iPhone. Intel had demoed an iPhone-like device based on the platform, due in 2009, at the latest Intel Developer Forum.
