Engadget reports on a Twitter post from Eldar Murtazin, editor-in-chief of Russian mobile phone blog Mobile-Review, claiming that Apple's long-time partner Foxconn has received the manufacturing contract for the next-generation iPhone.
Mobile-Review reportedly has a very strong track record in the mobile phone rumor community, but has rarely turned its attention to the iPhone.Foxconn received order for next generation iphone
Foxconn has been Apple's iPhone manufacturing partner since production began on the original version, which launched in mid-2007. For the original iPhone, sources had claimed the previous November that Foxconn had been tabbed as the iPhone's manufacturer, suggesting that a new contract now would not be out of the ordinary for a launch in mid-2010.
