According to the rumor mills, Apple is planning on introducing a Wi-Fi version of three popular models of iPods, in the second half of 2007.
News reports reveal that Universal Scientific Industrial (USI) will produce the Wi-Fi modules and Foxconn will perform as the OEM system assembler. According to the reports, USI will begin shipments later in April, while Foxconn may do so in the third quarter.
Analysts say Microsoft's Zune has led to increasing development of Wi-Fi portable music players, with Singapore-based Creative and SanDisk showcasing such players at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show. Also, Digitimes reveals that Samsung and Sony are also planning to offer similar products soon.
