It is being reported that the world’s next-generation iPhone will be built by Taiwan’s Hon Hai Precision Industry, who have secured a huge deal with Apple.
Earlier this week it was reported by the Huffington Post that all New York Apple stores had sold out of iPhones, so it is only good business sense that the company now announce plans to bring out a newer sleeker model.
It is estimated that the product will begin to be built in May, but when the iPhones will hit store shelves is anybody’s guess.
It is estimated that over the last half of 2008, Apple will build more than 11 million IPhones, and one can be sure that due to their huge popularity that the majority of them will be sold in due time.
Many questions are being asked regarding the new design of the iPhone, as many are only interested in the upgrade due to the possibility that it looks cooler than the current model. “Apple almost always updates its design just enough so you can tell who has the new one and who has the old one,” said Roger Kay, President of Endpoint Technologies.
