WiFi iPods in Second Half of 2007?
DigiTimes claims that Apple plans on launching with Wi-Fi capabilities in the "second half of 2007"
Universal Scientific Industrial (USI) will produce the Wi-Fi modules and Foxconn will perform as the OEM system assembler, according to Taiwan portable music player component makers.
USI will begin shipments later in April, while Foxconn may do so in the third quarter, the sources pointed out.
The possibility of wireless iPods have been discussed for years, but have not yielded any shipping products. Previous reports expected Apple to introduce some form of Wireless iPod to compete with Microsoft's Zune player which does bundle Wifi connectivity.
