Pegatron’s Plan to Be the Second iPhone 5 Supplier, Still on Track

Written on August 03, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Pegatron declared that they are still on track with their plan to be the second iPhone 5 Supplier.

Pegatron’s plan to be the second company to supply iPhone 5 is still on track. The said firm’s order is now expected to be 10 million, instead of the earlier hinted 15 million. However, it will still release the said device in September. The information slightly contradicts the rumor that Apple’s new smartphone may not appear until October, since Pegatron would be shipping directly to Apple and customers.

As the primary manufacturer of CDMA iPhones, Pegatron is widely known to the manufacturing base. However, it’s just a runner-up to Foxconn that handles GSM iPhones. The revelations from Verizon which stated that iPhone 5 is probably a dual-mode phone may turn Pegatron’s production into a compliment instead of a vital responsibility. This kind of strategy might prevent the chronic shortages and international delays to occur.

Irrespective of the iPhone plans, Pegatron is hoping to increase its responsibility to include the iPad and Macs. iPhone margins are said to be small and leave the company eager to diversify its contracts. Pegatron was ASUS’ original manufacturing wing and still produces notebooks for ASUS and other companies until today. These includes 8 to 10 million planned for Acer for next year.

The rumored PlayStation 4 from Sony will come with motion controls on 2012. Really?

DigiTimes reported today that Sony’s manufacturing partners will start working on its next-generation game console later this year. Though further details are still unavailable, it is said that the rumored PlayStation 4 will feature motion controls like Microsoft’s Kinect.

In addition to this, Foxconn and Pegatron Technology – which were previously charged to manufacture PlayStation 3 – is said to make the upcoming PS4. With regards to the number of units to be released, DigiTimes cited that Sony will unleash at least 20 million units by next year. As for Sony PlayStation 4’s release date, it is said that the company will not launch the console earlier than 2013. But with Nintendo Wii U and Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox set for a 2012 release, Sony is in best interest to speed up PS4’s process to remain in the competition.

Other than these, no further information is currently available. But All We Like promises to keep you posted, so just stick it here for more PlayStation 4 updates.

Comments Off

After Nintendo confirms that Project Cafe will be the Wii's successor, an anonymous source leaks the upcoming console's system specs.

An anonymous source close to Nintendo leaked the possible system specs for the Wii’s successor – Project Cafe. According to the source, the Project Cafe will be built around the AMD R700 GPU architecture, and that the console’s graphical power will outperform PS3’s NVIDIA 7800GTX-based processor.

The Project Cafe will output at 1080p with stereoscopic 3D. The CPU is said to be a custom-made triple core IBM PowerPC chipset, with faster clock speed compare to Xbox 360. In addition to this, Foxconn will manufacture the console, although the company has yet to comment on that. Project Cafe’s size will roughly be akin to Xbox 360, and may be designed similarly to classic NES.

Nintendo’s Project Cafe is said to carry a price tag between $350 (£212) and $400 (£242).
