An unconfirmed report says that Pegatron will be shipping the new iPhone 5 in September.
Pegatron Technology has landed orders for 10 million units of iPhone 5 to become the second ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) of the smartphone. Shipments will start in September, according to industry sources. As iPhone gross margins are relatively small, Pegatron aims to compete for orders for iPad, MacBook Air and other Apple products and has increased production equipment and employment, the sources said.
Pegatron as a company has only been around as long as the original iPhone. It was founded in 2007 and in addition to manufacturing Apple devices, it manufactures motherboards, notebooks, game consoles and LCD Screens for various tech companies. It’s revenues are reportedly up 44% from June of last year, and us Apple fans like to think that’s because of a new lucrative contract with Apple for the new iPhone!
