Rumour has it that Quanta received an order to manufacture 5 million iPhones for Apple which are supposed to be shipped in September. The rumour mill also indicates Apple is already working on a second-generation iPhone:
Presumably this could entail a 3G or even 3.5G HSDPA iPhone for European markets due to get the iPhone by the end of the year, or even the addition of more memory – imagine a 16Gb or even 32Gb iPhone, unlikely though those will be this year mainly due to the high cost of 16 or 32Gb of flash memory.
Quanta initially offered no comment on the rumors and reports that it had secured the right to also manufacture iPhones, but since then, Quanta has made a statement in the news section of their website entitled: Quanta Computer Address News Report on " Quanta Receive iPhone Order".
Here Quanta answer the question, did “Quanta receive iPhone order?”.
Their response is: “Quanta and Apple are building a tighter than ever relationships. Quanta not only manufactures NB 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”.
