Houston Community News >> Next Generation iPhones to be Lighter

4/30/2008 Taipei (CENS)--Foreign institutional investors believed Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. had won orders to make 25 million units of Apple's latest iPhone and would begin to ship the phones in June this year.

The newest version is the third generation of this phone, weighing only 110 to 120 grams vs. first generation cousin's 158 grams and running on 3G mobile technology. Adopting plastic casing instead of aluminum-magnesium casing largely brings down the gear's weight and cost by nearly one third. In addition to weight advantage, the latest version is also more energy efficient and externally smarter. LCD screen on the phone measures 2.8 inches diagonally, a downsize from first generation's 3.5 inches.
