How does Intel get away with claiming technology leadership with foundry regarding mobile SOC? Iphone 5 shipping now ~50M units this year 4G MDM9615 manufactured in **28nm** A6 in **32nm** Intel last week Razr announced but not shipping 3G manufactured in **foundry 45nm** Atom in **32nm** Intel's 22nm finFET SOC does not ship until end of 2013. Something is very wrong. I hear moving design IP and transistor variation is the problem due to finFET being on bulk and requiring fin doping

From a simple viewpoint, any progress in battery technology would affect size and weight for these phones more than any other aspect. (FYI, a little editing would improve your article.)

Apple's handset are with the same processor or power management unit,such as: ipad, iphone, and apple and maybe itouch.Also use the same ios system with iphone and ipad. I once test the power sequence of ipad 2 use the dialog semiconductor PMU.It's very hard when first test this.The datasheet is very long. Power management is very critical for this battery powered system.I need charge my smart phone everyday which is samsung galaxy r. Ipad is the largest iphone without telephone capacity.

The only problem is that from a pure technical point on view that is not that easy.

Why does it take multiple pages to read EE Times web articles? This one is 21 pages long!!! Come on EE Times, put the entire article on 1 web page and save us the unnecessary clicking. I know using the 'print' button will put everything on one page, but why do we need to do this extra step for every article?

"The iPhone 5 is touted by many as the most innovative iPhone since the original" The most innovative thing Apple could do with an iPhone is thumb a nose at Jobs' corpse and make it run Flash - and they still haven't done it
