    The iPhone parts breakdown in detail is at TechOnline.

    The GPS is the Infineon 2525, which should be a very good chip with only the antennas being a limiting factor. Based on this older comparison, Infineon already had a smaller chip than competitors--the new 2525 is even smaller with better accuracy.

    Wow, Infineon parts are used extensively throught the new iPhone. What I thought was weird was like the article said, one of the Infineon chips was a two chip part while others have a one part chip. It also noted that the PMB 2525 Hammerhead II chip is noted as a PMB 2520 Hammerhead I on the board. I thought that was weird.

    Although the 2520 was one of the smaller GPS chips, the 2525 is even smaller--its probably a good indicator that their using the 2525 despite the label.

    One thing that I noticed with their map and GPS, it sure lags a bit and goes of course. With the iphone's GPS the marker moves in bursts and not in a similar way as the way it moveson a BB which is constant movement. Hopefully a pure GPS solution (from the like of TomTom) will be released soo and will use the real capabilities of the GPS.

    I noticed the lag too. It slows down and speeds up. I'm curious if its an issue with Google Maps,location based services, or the hardware GPS.
