Digi-Times reports:

Speculation about whether Apple will introduce a cost-down version of its iPhone continues to arise in the Chinese-language media, with a recent report in the Chinese-language Commercial Times newspaper indicating that Taiwan-based Wintek has gained touch screen panel orders from Apple for its second-generation iPhone.

The report claims that the new iPhone from Apple will begin shipping in September with prices ranging from US$249-299. The paper added that Apple recently visited Wintek to deliver instructions on manufacturing and the company has begun test production in small volumes.

Other Chinese-language media reports have listed Quanta Computer as the possible manufacturer of the second-generation device. Quanta has denied that report and Wintek has declined to comment, citing customers confidentiality.

JP Morgan has also contributed to the speculation, issuing a report earlier this month discussing the possibility of a low-end Nano version of the iPhone in the near term, with the financial firm basing its forecast on channel checks and a public patent filing.
