Apple isn’t exactly synonymous with mobile phones (besides the ROKR), but the forthcoming iPhone may change that. Johnny Chan, a Hong-Kong based analyst, claims that Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Hon Hai will be given a contract to build the phone later this year. No official design has been revealed yet, but there have been concepts floating around.

According to online reports, a JP Morgan analyst thinks so, stating that the company is hard at work on an “iPod with phone functions” that will arrive before the end of the year.
