The Apple iPhone is imminent, and so are the massive shipments of iPhones that Apple will needÂ to cover the demand. Foxconn (Han Hai Precision Industry) has already locked down the Apple iPhone manufacturing contract for the initial launch window, but it’s hard to imagine that a single component integrator can handle the global iPhone demand. According to the Chinese-language Commercial Times,Â Foxconn will be getting some iPhone manufacturing backup from Quanta. Apple has allegedly awarded the second manufacturing contract to Quanta and has already placed a 5 million unit order, due for a September 2007 shipment.
Looks like Apple is making sure that they can meet not only the global demand, but their global sales goal for the iPhone!
