OmniVision To Produce 3.2 and 5 MegaPixel Image Sensors for iPhone

Apple is working with OmniVision on 3.2 MP and 5 MP image sensors for the new iPhone coming in June

In addition to this, the same source is also reporting that a 5 megapixel image sensor is also included in the deal which is not iPhone bound but rather for a different product all together which is slated to launch much later this year, perhaps for that rumored touchscreen netbook or “the other” iPhone. We’ll see…
