According to MacRumors, Taiwanese manufactures have taken orders for parts to go into the new slimmed down Apple blower. Factories will apparently start work on the new must–have gadgets in March, meaning a June announcement, possibly at WWDC.
The new model will reportedly have a smaller screen and a more affordable price tag, obviously rocking lower storage for those not after stashing stacks of tunes, apps and movies on their phone.
For now, this remains very much a rumour, but expect to hear plenty more in the next few months. For full coverage of Macworld 2009, check out our live blog straight from San Francisco now.
