Quanta is out, Foxconn to contract the next-gen iMac

Apple must be laughing at this so-called reliable source, Digitimes has revised its last report on Economic Daily News regarding the manufacturer behind the iMac all-in-one PC. As of today, Quanta is out of the picture, it was Foxconn who has secured a 800,000 units shipment per month contract with Jobs to build the allegedly next gen iMac to be announced at Macworld Conference next week.

So unless there are new updates next week on who makes what from which contract. Here's the new standing : Foxconn and Catcher Technology are in bed to supply the magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis while Foxconn will seek partnership in cooling module from Auras Technology. A cooling module? Could that possible hint a change in current-fan based cooling system?

In any case, we will find out in a week there will be a new iMac or just another rumor. Just a reminder that Slashgear will be bringing MacWorld conference live coverage. Be sure to check us out at http://live.slashgear.com
