Those darn foreigners piss in Apple’s coffee again. TWICE!

Poor Apple. The infamously secretive company has once again had some of its secretive beans spilled by leaks coming from foreign partners who did not get the memo that Apple likes to announce its own products, thank you very much. First up comes news from Intel’s GERMAN CEO Hannes Schwaderer that there will be a brand new, larger iPhone-like device coming from Apple soon.

“As part of an Intel event for the 40th birthday of the semiconductor company at Munich’s BMW World, Germany managing director Hannes Schwaderer confirmed today what has long been a rumor on the Internet: namely, that there is an iPhone with Intel’s new Atom chip. The device is slightly larger than the current version, Schwaderer said. That is not, however, because of the Intel chip, but because of the larger display used in the new iPhone.”

Nice one Schwaderer. But you forgot to tell us what color it will be.

(On the odd chance that rumor turns out to be true, remember where you heard it first.)

Next up, we have news that the next gen iPhone will support streaming television, courtesy of the iPhone’s exclusive Swiss carrier, Swisscom. (Yes, Swisscom, of the “bizarrely giant hands” fame). Well, hopefully it will be able to stream non-Swiss programming as well.

To be fair to our foreign speaking friends, I understand their excitement. If for some reason Apple decided that Macenstein was going to be the exclusive iPhone carrier for Awesometown NJ, I’m pretty sure I would slip up and tell someone too. “Loose lips” are the unfortunate side effect of having to rely on others to hawk your wares abroad. However, it’s one thing to have a leak come from the warehouse where shipments are being unloaded, and another entirely to have the CEO of Intel to blab about it at a very public event. I’m anticipating some sort of lame damage control-type press release about the language barrier, and how Schwaderer meant to say Intel’s new Atom processor would be ideal for a new iPhone-like device, if one should ever exist, in some far off, totally unpredictable time.
