According to a research note from UBS analysts, Apple will launch a 3G iPhone by mid-year that will probably be powered by an Infineon Technologies' chip. Both Apple CEO Steve Jobs and AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega have said that a 3G iPhone would launch by the end of 2008. UBS also noted that production of EDGE-based iPhones will begin to ramp down by mid-year. The analysts wrote that both O2 in the U.K. and AT&T in the U.S. have urged Apple to release a 3G version of the handset during the summer.
