Apple Widescreen iBook? (Unlikely)

Digitimes claims that Quanta Computer has recently obtained orders for a New model of Apple iBook.

Quanta, already the biggest contract maker for Apples PowerBooks, will start to ship 14.1-inch widescreen iBooks as early as the fourth quarter of 2005, the sources said.

In general, Digitimes' reports have been consistently inaccurate. Last report claimed that Apple would be shipping G5 iBooks as well as G5 PowerBooks by end of the 2nd Quarter of 2005.
