Reference to the upcoming iPhone 3G phone found in SDK

iPhone SDK was just released, and talented Zibri, whom we know as the maker of ZiPhone iPhone unlock/jailbreak tool, has found references to what appears to be 3G chip inside the new firmware.

Apparently, the new iPhone might use SGOLD3 chip, and upgraded version of current SGOLD2.

Interestingly the new GOLD3 chip (Infineon PMB 8878) adds not only 3G, but also supports HSDPA category 8 (7.2 Mbit/s) which is doubtful to be making onto the new iPhone. But who knows. Current HSDPA networks support only 3.6-megabit access.


The new chip will also support WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access), a 3G like network used in Europe and Asia.
