    Ooh… Uh… I wouldn't even be sure about these, but overall we can narrow it down a touch further. ARM CPU, Bluetooth 4.0, two camera modules (gasp!)…

    I was suggesting that the manufacturer and the (basic) model number of the major components can already be identified:

    Apple A6 SoC featuring a custom ARM architecture on a 1.6 GHz dual-core PoP 28 nm HKMG process with 1GB LPDDR2-1066 RAM
    Imagination Technologies PowerVR 6230 dual-core GPU @ 400 MHz
    Broadcom (custom) PoP Dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
    Qualcomm RF360 Front End Solution 3D PoP CDMA, TD-SCDMA, GSM/EDGE, UMTS, HSPA+, DC-HSPA, LTE, TD-LTE
    Sony 13.3 MP CMOS with HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie feature and improved low light function

    The least certain component is the Sony CMOS due to an inability to reach certain technical specifications previous claimed. Additionally, while many believe Apple will use NFC I am less certain thus the Broadcom chipset may not provide NFC.

    Lots of prior art on this one. Apple will have to play some games to get any patents on mobile payment. Shore&hl=en&sa=X&ei=dRkAVNSzII7jaoSTgPgF&ved=0CB8Q6AEwAA Shore&hl=en&sa=X&ei=dRkAVNSzII7jaoSTgPgF&ved=0CCYQ6AEwAQ Shore&hl=en&sa=X&ei=dRkAVNSzII7jaoSTgPgF&ved=0CC0Q6AEwAg
