Apple to use Qualcomm chips in iPhone 5 and iPad 2
We already heard reports, like those from the Commercial Times, that the 5th gen iPhone would have Qualcomm chips. A Taiwan news source now also reports that Qualcomm, among others, has been selected for the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 components.

Taipei's Economic Daily News published a list of component suppliers for the next Apple devices: baseband chips from Qualcomm, CPU from Samsung, Wi-Fi chip from Marvell, Flash memory from Intel, touch screen controller by Broadcom, audio chip from Wolfson, video display interface chip from National Semiconductor/Infineon, Bluetooth from CSR and power management from TI.

There was no mention as to a Sprint or Verizon iPhone, but the Qualcomm baseband chips are definitely a good sign.

PA is already talking about iPhone 5?!?!?! It's like every time they hear the word iPhone "I got make an article about that." Might as well start saying that the iPhone 5 is going to be for Verizon lol.
