Apple's iPod has attracted its latest rumour – that a WiFi-enabled iPod will ship in the second half of 2007.

A report on DigiTimes claims Universal Scientific Industrial (USI) and Foxconn have been contracted to manufacture the new devices, with USI delivering the first batch of WiFi modules later this month.

The report claims Foxconn – which will provide the final assembly of the devices – will begin shipping the products in the third quarter.

While other manufacturers are moving to embrace WiFi in their players, it is already known that Apple plans to include wireless technology in its soon-to-ship (in the US) iPhone.
