I think this is a shrewed step from big A. They cannot posssibly rely on Foxconn alone and put their multi billion dollar business at risk. It must be a stroke of luck for Pegatron though they made all the investments to attract such a high profile client. It just goes to show that even in lean times companies which deploy new and advanced processes still stand to gain.

It is interesting to know that finally there is an alternative OEM for Apple. Once the production volume in Pegatron ramps up, Apple will further squeeze the margin of OEM. The life of being the contract manufacturer is tough!

That would make sense given the last time I was in Taipei I saw they have a BIIIIIIG expanding office and they would not grant me an interview ;-)

Good move for Apple to have 2nd supplier. Having multiple suppliers is always a good idea for a company to keep the supply uninterrupted and to maintain the competitiveness of the products. There are thousand of OEMs in China. What would be Apple's criteria to choose one OEMs over the others?
