Rumours are kicking around that Apple is to launch an iPhone sometime soon. Seemingly, BenQ say that Apple procurement executives have been talking to various Taiwanese phone makers, trying to make a deal to provision an iPod phone. However, its not likely that BenQ will be the partner involved.

BenQ are spreading the rumour the company has declined to be apart of making the end result. "An iPod phone is definitely coming. BenQ will not be making it as we are in competition with Apple however several of our suppliers have been approached to manufacture parts", said the BenQ executive.
