Quanta Computer Said To Be Working On An 'iPad Pro' For Apple
Another report has surfaced that indicates Apple has contracted with Quanta Computer to build a larger iPad. DigiTimes also says that the Taiwan-based company could be tasked to work on Apple’s so-called “iWatch.” According to sources, the “iPad Pro” will launch in the second half of 2014 and come with a 12.9-inch display. The product will mainly “target the education and enterprise markets.” Quanta, Inventec, and Foxconn Electronics “are currently competing over Apple's iWatch orders, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.” Like the larger iPad, Apple’s first wearable device is expected to launch sometime next year. In September, United Daily News reported that Quanta was working on Apple’s “‘giant’ of a tablet.” The company has long been an Apple supplier and is the largest producer of notebook computers in the world. Numerous reports in recent weeks have surfaced about the iPad Pro, which has also been described as an “iPad Maxi.” Just last week, for example, The Korea Times said the product would launch in 2014 and have improved picture quality, which will be on par with “ultra high-definition” displays. As usual, we’ll keep you updated.
