    [Rumor] Foxconn Plant Set to Build Microsoft and Amazon Mobile Phones


    We have some news today from DigiTimes, and I use the term "news" loosely when referring to them. DigiTimes is infamous for their patently false intel sometimes. Still, on many occasions the rumors coming from them turn out to be spot on, so today's info is worth reporting. Supposedly, both Microsoft and Amazon are planning to have Foxconn build branded smartphones from them. Here's a quote with the "rumint":

    Foxconn International Holding (FIH) has reportedly landed handset orders from Microsoft and Amazon and is set to launch the devices in mid-2013, according to sources from the upstream supply chain. However, both the parent company Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) and FIH declined to comment about clients or orders.

    Foxconn is the major manufacturer of Apple's iPhone products, while its subsidiary FIH has clients including Nokia, Sony, Lenovo, Huawei and ZTE.

    Microsoft's own-brand handset will adopt its Windows Phone 8 operating system, the sources noted.

    The sources pointed out that Microsoft and Amazon's own-brand handsets will only have a limited shipment volume initially and may become a new business model for the manufacturers in the future.
    Considering we have heard several rumors over the past year hinting at a Microsoft Surface phone and an Amazon Kindle phone, this info could turn out to be one of the times where DigiTimes gets it right. The prospect definitely has us excited.

    Isn't that the same company with the recent college student strike, inability to keep up with production demands, rumors of sweat shop working conditions, etc?
