Apple is going to be pissed off when it finds out that Taiwanese manufacturer Hon Hai let it slip that they scored a contract with Apple to manufacture 12 million mobile handsets that can play music. Hmmm, sounds a lot like an iPhone to me. Hon Hai is also the supposed manufacturer of Apple’s upcoming 15-inch MacBook. So when can we expect a OS X-laden handset to be released to the masses? The target date for release is sometime in mid-2007. So yes, details are sketchy and everything, but if you were wetting your pants for an Apple cellphone, you’re in for a treat unless they somehow screw it up.
