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.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
