Once the December holidays are over, customers will be thinking about new products from Apple. Now that Macworld Expo is off of Apple’s calendar, updates can come whenever they’re deemed ready.

The iPhone 3G was released on July 11th, 2008 and the 3GS began shipping a year later on June 19th, 2009. Additionally, many customers have contracts that expire in July. In a few weeks, we’ll be six months away, so it’s time to begin lining up production.

Today’s rumor is based on brief tweet from Mobile Review’s editor-in-chief, Eldar Murtazin: “Foxconn received order for next generation iphone.” Before you blow it off, consider that Engadget calls him “…the ultimate insider when it come to all things mobile.” Foxconn is a Taiwan-based manufacturer that has worked with Apple on a number of projects.

Rumors have placed the next-gen iPhone release in either June or July, 2010. According to iPhone developer Pandav, field-testing of the next model has begun.
