A new DigiTimes report indicates that that Apple may be preparing to use a second manufacturing partner for the rumored next-generation iPad. The device is also rumored to be released later this year.
Apple reportedly plans to add a second manufacturer for iPad 3 tablet PCs in addition to Foxconn Electronics with Taiwan-based Quanta Computer and [Pegatron] Technology being indicated as the potential contenders for the possible orders, according to industry sources in Taiwan.
The DigiTimes report states that the reason for the new manufacturing partner is mostly due to the recent explosion at Foxconn. To minimize overall risk, Apple reportedly sees fit to expand its partners.
