Hon Hai Receives iPhone Contract? [Updated]
According to the Commercial Times (mirrored by Forbes), Taiwan's Hon Hai has received a 12 million unit contract for the rumored iPhone. According to the site, the product would be released in the first half of next year, which currently echos other reports.
The article also briefly mentions Hon Hai receiving a contract for a 15" MacBook, due to be delivered next year or in January. This most likely refers to Hon Hai simply becoming another supplier of the 15" MacBook Pro rather than a new 15" MacBook model.
There have been previous reports (reported by AppleInsider) that indicated that Hon Hai subsidiary Foxconn was looking to procure a 15" MacBook Pro contract.
Update: According to another report in the China Times, Hon Hai subsidiary Foxconn will begin pumping out 500,000 to 600,000 units per month from its Fushikang manufacturing facility beginning in February. The 'iPhone' is also detailed to include a 2 megapixel camera. ThinkSecret has previously reported that the phone will sport a 3 megapixel camera.
