Quanta Computer is to become Apple’s newest iPhone partner, according to a report in Taiwan’s Economic Daily News.

The Economic Daily News reported that Quanta is already slated to become an iPhone assembler, becoming the second Taiwanese company behind Hon Hai Precision Industry to build the handsets for Apple. The paper also said Quanta is working on a new smartphone for Dell, without citing a source for the information.

Quanta does not discuss customer orders, a spokeswoman said, but noted that this year, the company is focused on building its smartphone and PDA (personal digital assistant) business.
