Foxconn to make 12 Million Apple iPhone



According to the Commercial Times, Foxconn Electronics, a Taiwan-based company, will manufacture Apple’s first handset with shipments of 12 million units. It is said that Apple will release its music handset in the first half of 2007.

“The design will be an iPod nano-like candy bar form factor and come in three colors (we are not certain of the exact colors but we suspect black, white and platinum, similar to Apple’s current color scheme of iPods and Macs),” he wrote in a note to clients.

Analysts at Prudential have also weighed in with their findings on the iPod cell phone initiative, stating in an October report that Apple would initially produce two models — one being a smart phone, which would include an integrated keyboard, video and music capability, while the other model would be slimmer with only music functionality.
