Solectron Corp. has been tapped once again to provide repair and warranty services for Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox gaming device.
Solectron, a Milpitas, Calif., EMS company, will offer after-sales support for the Redmond, Wash., software maker's Xbox video game console in Australia and Japan. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Last October, Microsoft selected Solectron to perform similar repair and warranty services for the Xbox in North America. The deal marked the first working relationship between the two companies.
Under the current deal, Solectron will repair Xbox equipment at its Sydney, Australia and Koriyama, Japan plants.
