Apple pushing supply chain load from Foxconn to Pegatron, says sources

As we noted yesterday, Apple's Tim Cook hinted that variations of the iPhone, such as versions that fall at different price points, could be in the company's future. Rumors of a low-cost iPhone have been circulating for months now, with at one point Apple's Phil Schiller saying such a device will never have a future in the company's products. Despite that, the rumor is still alive, and today sources told the Wall Street Journal that a low-cost iPhone is expected to be made available later this year.

Microsoft Android patent hunting hits Pegatron

Microsoft Android patent hunting hits Pegatron

The group known as Pegatron Corp. have become the next in a line of companies creating hardware based around Android and Chrome OS to have signed a patent agreement with Microsoft. It's been some weeks since we heard the last case of this happening, but what each of these cases have amounted to is the same as what's going on here: Microsoft owns a gigantic batch of patents, many of which cover devices whose functionality lends itself to Android. In this case, both Android and Chrome devices made by Pegatron might otherwise have fallen under Microsoft's lawsuit umbrella unless Pegatron made an agreement with Microsoft like they're doing here to give them cash per unit sold.

Pegatron readying 15m next-gen iPhone 5/4S order for September tip insiders

Pegatron readying 15m next-gen iPhone 5/4S order for September tip insiders

Apple's iPhone 5 fabricator, Pegatron, has reportedly landed a 15m-strong order for the fifth-gen smartphone, with shipping expected to begin in September. That's according to the latest leaks to drain their way down the DigiTimes plughole, with component supplier sources claiming that - contrary to expectations of a significantly more advanced handset - the iPhone 5 "does not seem to have any major update" from its predecessor. That could suggest a single device, or that Apple has split manufacturing responsibilities for a two-strong next-gen iPhone line-up between suppliers.

HTC Flyer tablet a 7-inch Pegatron rush-job for Q1 2011?

HTC Flyer tablet a 7-inch Pegatron rush-job for Q1 2011?

More chatter around HTC's new tablet, the HTC Flyer, has emerged, with a new Economic Daily News report suggesting that the company has worked with Pegatron to rush the first model out by the end of Q1 2011. According to the report, the 7-inch slate will run Android 2.3 as well as a new version of HTC Sense, and be followed by two Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets later in the year. That fits in with previous talk - which pegged the two follow-up slates as arriving in June 2011, at least one of which potentially having 4G LTE connectivity - and certainly paves the way for the Flyer to make its debut at MWC 2011 next week.
