Rumors have been circulating for months that Apple, Inc. intends to put out its first mobile phone.
It isn’t definite confirmation, but according to an article on Smarthouse, people working for smartphone-maker BenQ have indicated that Apple is indeed putting together an iPhone.
BenQ won’t be producing this device, but its part suppliers have supposedly told BenQ employees about it.
Reportedly, the company that will manufacture the first Apple-branded mobile phone has not yet been picked.
Unfortunately, that’s all the information BenQ has.
Still, many believe that the iPhone will be on the market before the end of this year.
Exactly what features the iPhone will have are not known at this time, although most people assume it will offer support for Apple’s iTunes music service.
There is already a phone on the market with iTunes support, but this bears the Motorola brand, and, aside from some audio software, Apple had very little to do with the creation of this device.
