With early-this year news about Apple’s low cost iPhone seems finally taking its shape, as the Cupertino-giant partner Pegatron is increasing its staff by 40% giving all extra miles to rumors about cheaper iPhone.
Pegatron, Apple’s key component suppliers told Reuters about its plans of increasing its workforce by 40% in the second half of 2013. The move means, the Taipei-headquartered company which currently having a staff of 100,000, but with as per talks, it is adding another 40,000 to its this year.
Also, it’s worthy to note that Pegatron CFO Charles Lin shared that the company is expecting to see revenue pouring more in its second half of the year, while CEO Jason Cheng told investors that income from ‘communication products’ would account for 40 percent of company’s revenue in the second half of the year.
More likely that big picture is on the way, but it’s also heart worthy that how many of us are actually waiting for cheaper iPhone. Second question points here that if in real the cheaper version of iPhone comes into the market, do it brings the same (at least some) features on board. Questions are many, but answers will believe to be out only when more things come into picture.
