Foxconn's Gou Says Tough to Cope with iPhone Demand

November 7, 2012

Taiwan's Foxconn Technology Group said on Wednesday the company's flagship Hon Hai unit is finding it difficult to cope with the massive demand for Apple Inc's iPhones.

"It's not easy to make the iPhones. We are falling short of meeting the huge demand," Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou told reporters after a business forum.

However, he declined to comment on brokerage reports saying that the group's other unit, Foxconn International Holdings (FIH), had taken on some production.

iPhone 5 Brings Big Opportunities to Retailers and Manufacturers
October 17, 2012 From News
In the first 24 hours of its release, more than two million orders were placed for the iPhone 5. These lightning-speed pre-orders quickly struck down Apple’s previous record of one million first-day pre-orders for the iPhone 4S last October. While it’s very easy to find this impressive, some may find it difficult to see opportunity in another company’s achievement. But by further expanding into the wireless accessory segment of the CE marketplace, retailers and manufacturers can translate some of Apple’s sales success into their own.
For retailers, one of the most significant changes unveiled with the iPhone 5 is the Lightning connector. Eighty percent smaller than the previous 30-pin connector, the new Lightning connector renders obsolete many of the iPhone accessories consumers own. Although consumers can choose to buy the $29 adapter from Apple to use with their existing iPhone accessories, many will likely opt to purchase new accessories all together. Retailers who understand this potential and prepare by stocking new iPhone 5 accessories will definitely reap the rewards.
