Foxconn declines comment on PS3 Slim contract

Attempting to quell earlier reports that they’ve signed an agreement with Sony to build the rumored PS3 Slim, Foxconn issued an official “no comment” statement with the Taiwan Stock Exchange today.

The Economic Daily News reported yesterday that Foxconn and Pegatron had signed contracts to manufacture a smaller version of the current PS3 with shipments to begin this month. Citing “customer confidentiality” is more or less a clear indication that they’re on board to pump out the Slims this month.

It seems a little too coincidental with the Ars Mole divulging details about a price drop and Slim model, too.
