Report: New iPhone, Xbox Natal to be made in same factory

Taiwanese manufacturer Pegatron Technology was chosen by Apple to build the next-generation iPhone coming out later this year, according to a report in Taipei-based DigiTimes.

It noted that Microsoft has also hired Pegatron to build the “Project Natal” controllers for the Xbox 360 that will go on sale later this year.

Imagine if they jumbled things up and shipped motion-sensing iPhones or Natal controllers that synced to iTunes.

Pegatron “has reportedly landed a contract to undertake OEM production of the next-generation iPhone scheduled for launch later in the year, joining Foxconn Electronics which manufactures current iPhones for Apple, according to industry sources,” the report said.

Not much was said about the Natal device, which has been kept largely under wraps. Here’s an image I took of one of the prototypes that Microsoft has provided to studios developing Natal games; this one’s mounted on a camera tripod:
