Hon Hai Precision a.k.a Foxconn, the Taiwan based supplier of Apple’s iOS devices, has reportedly partnered with circuit board supplier Flexium Interconnect, in order to ramp up the production of iPhone 5 and iPad Mini and meet the growing market demand of these newer iOS devices (via PatentlyApple).
A publication today by Taiwan’s United Daily News claims that Hon Hai Precision and Flexium Interconnect have agreed to operate their plants during the Chinese New Year, since the demand for the iPad mini and iPhone 5 is “too hot”. The dates for Chinese New Year fall between February 10-13.
According to BrightWire, a business-to-business resource for portfolio managers, Taiwan’s United Daily News is reporting this morning that the demand for the iPad mini and iPhone 5 is so hot that Hon Hai Precision and circuit board supplier Flexium Interconnect have agreed to operate their plants and certain production lines during the Chinese New Year. In particular, the report noted that Flexium has brought in and trained a great number of students to fill the production lines.
Looks like the iPad mini, once up to speed, is going to be a killer product for Apple next year. What do you think?
