This is due to production strains.
Agreed, was just gonna post that.
Rumor is the new plant will have less suicides since Apple raised their pay. Less deaths = better quality product.
Well, if that factory will indeed produce cdma iphones, it wont be out for another year so. The article says it will start BUILDING the factory in the fall.
Apple has nothing to do with the running of Foxconn. Apple just subs out products to Foxconn like many other companies do. Dell, Hitachi and literally dozens of others use Foxconn.
Foxconn produces a lot more than iPhones. China mainly uses CDMA, so having phones with that radio bands makes sense.
I REALLY doubt that CDMA iPhones are every coming to the US. Why? CDMA is dying. Sprint is moving to 4G Wi-Max, Verizon is going LTE, and AT&T is also going LTE. LTE won't be here for at least 2-3 years, so it won't be until LTE is as widely deployed as GPRS or EDGE is now before there is even a chance we will see an iPhone in a Verizon store.
They do that so they don't get blamed for worker mistreatment, just like every other company. Most clothing manufacturers have 3rd party contractors who employ sweatshop labor too.
No, Apple does this so they don't have to invest capital/resources into factories. This is the main reason Apple has $40B in cash.
