The latest rumors point towards Foxconn Electronics, which is supposed to make the Apple’s first netbook. Most of the rumors point towards a device having 10-inch screen and running Mac OS X. It is also supposed to have WiFi and built in 3G to use the cellular networks for Internet surfing.

  • via Apple and its retail stores
  • via cellular providers
