Apple selected Taiwanese electronics manufacturing giant Foxconn to manufacture the first batch of its iPhones, but a report by iTWire suggests a second iPhone manufactured by Quanta will follow shortly afterward. The first iPhone is scheduled to come out some time next month, most likely in the aftermath of Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference in mid-June.
Speculation regarding a second-gen, Quanta-built iPhone was sparked by a Commercial Times report earlier today, and Quanta addressed the rumors head-on with an official statement confirming its contract with Apple. "Quanta not only manufactures [notebooks] and iPod for Apple, but also may have receive the order to make the second generation of the Apple iPhone. iPhone is a smartphone based mobile, and the second generation model shipment is expected in September 2007 with forecast of 5 million units in 2008," the company stated.
iTWire believes the Quanta-built iPhone may feature 3G or 3.5G High-Speed Downlink Packet Access connectivity. The second-gen device could even boast more built-in memory than the first-gen model's 4GB or 8GB, the site speculates.
