Pegatron Technologies retrieves its lost MacBook orders, sou

Pegatron Technologies may have landed manufacturing orders for desktop Macs from Apple, Taiwanese trade publication Digitimes reported. If true, the deal should be viewed as a major win for Pegatron in the light of a revenue drop reported for their second quarter due to declining orders from Asustek. Pegatron assembled 1.5-1.6 million motherboards and desktops combined, 1.1-1.2 million notebooks, and 339,000 graphics and TV cards in June, Digitimes noted.
Pegatron Technologies, the spun-off manufacturing arm of Asustek Computer, handles OEM manufacturing of motherboards and components for Asustek, but is also a contract manufacturer for third-parties. According to a previous Digitimes report, Apple selected Pegatron to manufacture iPhone 4 alongside its long-standing contract manufacturer Foxconn (also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd.).
The Wall Street Journal cited “sources familiar with the situation” back in March who claimed that Apple commissioned Pegatron with mass producing CDMA-capable iPhones, adding it was “unclear when Apple might make the model available.” The latest checks with the rumor-mill point to a 2011 Verizon iPhone introduction.
