Report: Foxconn in running to manufacture upcoming Apple netbook

News, Rumors

Digitimes is reporting via the Chinese language Commercial Times that Foxconn is in the running to become the manufacturer for Apple’s rumored and not-yet-announced netbook.

This is just the latest tidbit of news originating out of China which hints at an upcoming Apple product with a smaller form factor.  Just a few weeks ago, we reported that Apple had placed an order for a shipment of 10-inch touchscreen panels from Wintek, the same Taiwanese company that supplies Apple with the touchscreens it uses for the iPhone.

Whether these panels will be used on a forthcoming netbook or some sort of larger iPod Touch remains open to speculation.
