When a week ago the rumor broke that FoxConn got a contract to build Apple iPhones I hesitated to actually write about it. Why? Because I am really tired of them.
Usually rumors are interesting. What I hate are these rumors that come and go for years like the iPhone one. In any case, the media is still full of iPhone reports and the Apple stock is rising and rising.
Today we even talk about a 2nd Apple phone, the so called iChat Phone.
Hopes are high that Steve Jobs will introduce the iPhone at the MacWorld Expo in January of 2007. I so much hope so, because than the iPhone rumor will be finally dead.
Read this Reuters story for a good summary of the current rumors. Also fun is this story about betting on the iPhone launch date. Engadget runs a story about Palm's CEO Ed Colligan laughing off the Apple iPhone. Digitimes has a commentary on the challenges the Apple iPhone faces.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
