New iPhones in 2007?
Taiwan's leading manufacturer of cellular phones -- Quanta Computer -- has obtained orders from Apple to manufacture a new iPhone model, according to a report from CENS. Domestic printed circuit board manufacturers are preparing materials for mass production to meet forthcoming assembly demands of the new iPhones, which are likely to debut some time in the fourth quarter of 2007, according to the report. One J.P. Morgan analyst based in Taiwan recently predicted that Apple will unveil a smaller iPod nano-sized iPhone, but the firm's headquarters in the U.S. distanced itself from such claims.
