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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
