Pegatron reportedly lands iPad 3 orders

Comments Off on Pegatron reportedly lands iPad 3 orders

Apple’s manufacturing partner Pegatron Technology has been reportedly lands small volume of orders for the upcoming iPad 3 which is set to be unveiled in March. The report also revealed that the company is expected to have considerable orders for Apple’s iPad 4 which is set to be launched in October, with initial volume of about 7-10 million units according to reliable sources from the upstream supply chain.

As DigiTimes reports:

The sources pointed out that Apple will also start changing its outsourcing strategy and will have Pegatron primarily focus on production of the iPad series products with production of the iPhone series products as an auxiliary in 2013, while the strategy for Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) is vice versa.

They further report that:

The sources noted that Apple’s new strategy is meant to decrease risk and increase the quality of its products and the company has already visited Pegatron’s plants in China several times recently to ensure the smoothness of the shipment process.

So basically it seems that Apple will be focusing on quality this time as it appears it’ll be allocating Pegatron for its iPad production, thus securing the smoothness and integrity on building each devices.

However, we might disagree on the report that Apple might release the iPad 4 this October, as the Cupertino-giant has never released two products in the same line in a single year. Obviously, it’ll phaseout or kill the earlier version, the case of iPad 4 killing the sales of iPad 3 in a span of several months only.
