Report: iPhone4G Component Suppliers Picked, Foxconn to do Assembly

A report from a Chinese language daily newspaper said that several component manufacturers in Taiwan will begin receiving orders for the iPhone 4G, including long-time Apple supplier Foxconn, which will assemble the device.

Apple has not yet announced the next upgrade for the iPhone, but the report from Taiwan-based Economic Daily News (via DigiTimes) suggests Apple is close to being ready for production. Indeed, Foxconn began receiving components for the device in April, according to the report.

The companies cited as suppliers include Wintek, which has supplied glass for other Apple products, Taiflex Scientific, which will supply flexible, copper-clad laminate, and Largan Precision and Genius Electronic, which will supply the camera module for the device.
