Next Generation iPhone Component Suppliers



iphone

This is a list of component suppliers for the next-generation iPhone that is rumored to arrive in mid 2009. The component list isn't particularly revealing except it reinforces the rumor that Apple will be using a 3.2 megapixel camera from OmniVision in the next generation iPhone. The current iPhone uses a 2 megapixel camera. The suppliers will begin shipping in May and the first batch is estimated at around 5 million units.

Apple orders 100 million 8Gb flash chips



flash

Apple has reportedly placed orders for 100 million 8Gb (8 gigabit, not gigabyte) NAND flash chips mostly with Samsung Electronics, which is likely to cause a supply shortage, according to sources at downstream suppliers. That's twice the size of the order reported last year. The tiny memory chips are then recombined during manufacturing into the larger 16GB, 32GB, and so on capacities we expect to find in our handheld consumer electronics. New iPhone this year! Any doubts?
