Hot (?) news from Taiwan, where phone maker BenQ says it is making an iPod phone, but it may know someone who is. Apparently, a BenQ executive says his suppliers have been approached about manufacturing parts for an Apple-commissioned cell phone, and that he thinks an iPod phone is "definitely coming." Of course, now that Taiwanese companies have leaked any information about anything Apple, Steve Jobs will be looking for a whole new set of suppliers and the iPhone will be on hold for another year or so. Oh, well. Sounded good, anyway.
