Sony manufacturing camera sensors for iPhone 5?

Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer lets slip that the company is supplying camera sensors to Apple

Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer has accidentally told the world the company may be supplying camera sensors for Apple's next generation iPhone 5.

Read our comprehensive iPhone 4 review and check out our guide to the best upcoming smartphones in 2011.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg, Stringer discussed a wide range of topics including the latest trend of tablets. Early in the discussion he said: "It always puzzles me. Why would I make Apple the best camera?"

Sony doesn't currently supply camera sensors for any Apple products, specifically the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2, fuelling speculation that Sony will be supplying camera sensors for the upcoming iPhone 5. Curiously, both Sony and Apple declined to comment on the matter.

Apple's iPhone 5 is still months away from becoming a reality, but rumours around the tech world suggest it will feature a larger 4in screen that could extend from edge-to-edge, an aluminium rear rather than the current glass backing of the iPhone 4, along with the same dual-core A5 processor used in the iPad 2.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
