A Taiwanese newspaper Commercial Times is reporting that Foxconn (Hon Hai) has landed a contract to manufacture the new 3G iPhone for shipment in June. Foxconn also manufactures the first generation iPhone. Foxconn will start the assembly of 3G iPhone by end of May according to the information obtained by Commercial Times from various component suppliers. Foxconn is expected to ship 3 million 3G iPhones in June and produce 24-25 million units before introduction of third revision of iPhone. It is almost like a know fact that Apple will launch the 3G iPhone in June but shipping 3 million iPhones in June is a clear indication of Apple’s plan to have a global 3G iPhone launch.
