Apple has chosen a company to manufacture its upcoming netbook. So says DigiTimes, quoting a Commercial Times report that itself cites "sources from the component supply chain."
Reportedly, Foxconn—the Taiwanese contract manufacturing heavyweight that's already gotten a number of contracts from Apple—will get to build the system. DigiTimes adds that the MacBook line "will become Foxconn's major notebook shipment growth contributor in the second quarter," which hints that the netbook might come out in that time frame. The report doesn't explicitly mention a launch schedule or specifications, though.
For that, one has to turn to somewhat more obscure sources. We recently wrote about a Russian source that produced photos and specifications of the purported Apple netbook, saying it would arrive in the spring and pair an Atom processor with GeForce 9400 integrated graphics. The source also predicted an $899 launch price.
