The boys in the far east are spilling the beans that Apple is considering the adoption of Intel’s Moorestown MID processor for the next run of iPhones.

Intel revealed a Moorestown-based MID product with functions similar to Apple’s iPhone at the recent Intel Developer Forum (IDF) San Francisco. The Moorestown platform is expected to launch in 2009 and Apple is considering developing an iPhone based on it, stated the sources.
