According to industry insiders, Quanta has landed orders for Apple’s current 5G iPod. The company is expected to begin shipping its first batch of iPods in April. Quanta joins Asus, Foxconn and Inventec as suppliers for its family of iPod music players.

Quanta has recently landed a deal with Hewlett-Packard to produce an ARM-based Windows Mobile 5.0 PDA phone.

As for Apple’s true iPod Video, we still haven’t heard anything new about the supposedly touch-screen based device. If any information leaks out early, rest assured that it will probably come from one of the above suppliers.
