Apple to Add Second Manufacturer for the iPad 3?

No comments:



Apple reportedly plans to add a second manufacturer for its iPad 3 in addition to Foxconn, according to DigiTimes.

The top contenders are said to be Quanta Computer and Pegatron Technology. Pegatron has already received orders for the iPhone 5 and may have a better chance of winning orders for the iPad 3.

Apple previously outsourced the production of iPad-series tablets to only Foxconn, which assembles the tablets mostly at its production base in Chengdu, western China. However, an explosion occurred at a Chengdu factory building on May 20 leaving three dead and 15 injured on May 20. The accident has forced Apple to seek a second contractor in order to minimize production risk.

The new iPad is set to be launched at the end of the third or beginning of the fourth quarter, according to the report.

Apple Asks ITC to Block Sales of HTC Devices for the Second Time

No comments:



Apple has filed a second complaint against HTC with the ITC, asking them to order an import ban on HTC devices, according to FOSS Patents.

It seems like Apple may be concerned that their initial complaint may not go in their favor and has determined that the patents in the new complaint are potentially stronger.

In April, the ITC staff expressed its opinion that HTC did not infringe any valid Apple patents within the scope of that investigation. The target date for a final initial determination by the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearing the case is August 5, 201. The ALJ could still rule in Apple's favor: the staff recommendation is, after all, just an opinion. However, a negative ITC staff recommendation does not bode well to say the least. I'm sure Apple will fight hard to make the original complaint succeed but doesn't want to depend on the outcome of that case.

The title of the complaint is "Portable Electronic Devices and Related Software", which suggests that Apple may be targeting both HTC smartphones and tablets.

No comments:



Leaping Bytes has announced the release of Ruduko, the new game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Ruduko is a puzzle strategy combination under one roof. Feeling that your logical skills need a little "tune-up"? Or are you in the mood to test your luck, but Las Vegas weather is too hot and Monte Carlo is too far?

* Shapes around the board provide some clues
* Number of clues decreases with each game level
