newton: reply hazy, try again UPDATED

AppleInsider is reporting a senior Intel executive has vouched for an Atom-based Apple Newton tablet.

Or did he?

From the article:

"Schwaderer today confirms what has long been a rumor on the Internet: namely, that there is an iPhone with Intel's new Atom chip," reads a report in the German edition of ZDNet. "The device is slightly larger than the current version, Schwaderer said. This is not [because of] the Intel chip, but [because of] the larger display used in the new iPhone."

As much as I want to believe that Apple is working on a new Newton, this doesn't do much to confirm anything.

Sorry, everyone. That said, if you've got better intelligence on this, let me know.

UPDATE1: There is no Atom-based iPhone, says Intel. (linky1, linky2 [my favorite])
