Well, our best information is that iPhones are on the way. This time for real.

Bloomberg News reports that Taipei, Taiwan-based Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., the world's largest contract electronics components manufacturer, has signed a contract to make 12 million mobile phones for Apple in 2007.

The phones, which will include iPod music player functionality, will be on the market sometime in the first half of 2007, Bloomberg cites the Commercial Times newspaper as saying. 

I'm entitled to believe this report. Bloomberg rarely repeats unsubstantiated rumors. 

It's not implausible that such a device would resemble the Photoshopped mock-up from Ilounge.

No comment from Apple (like they would), or Hon Hai.

Oh, let's take a poll.
