However, the devices are not yet packed since iOS 5 is said to be in the works still. While specs of Apple iPhone 5 are still known, it is believed that the mobile phone will sport a dual-core processor and 8-megapixel camera.

Pegatron Plans to be the Second iPhone 5 Supplier

Pegatron is still on track with their plans to be the second iPhone 5 supplier, and would ship in the devices in September.

Pegatron is still on track with its plan to be the second supplier of the iPhone 5. The said firm’s order is now expected to be at 10 million rather than its previous hinted order at 15 million. However, it will still ship finished products in September. The said data partly contradicted the rumor that the new Apple smartphone might not be released until October, since Pegatron would be shipping directly to Apple and customers.

Pegatron, the primary manufacturer of CDMA iPhones, is known in the manufacturing base. However, it currently plays runner-up to Foxconn which handles GSM iPhones. As Verizon revealed that the iPhone 5 might be a dual-mode phone, it may turn Pegatron’s production into a compliment rather than a vital responsibility. This kind of strategy might prevent the chronic shortages and international delays that plagued most iPhone releases to date — and might also occur on the iPhone 5.

Irrespective of the iPhone plans, Pegatron is hoping to boost its responsibility to include the iPad and Macs. iPhone margins are said to be small, and leaves the company eager to diversify its contracts. Pegatron was originally ASUS’ manufacturing wing and still produces notebooks for ASUS and other companies. These includes eight to ten million planned for Acer in 2012.

Foxconn, Apple's manufacturing partner, plans to replace some of its workers with 1 million humanoid robots.

Foxconn announced their plans of substituting most of their workers with one million robots for the next three years. According to Terry Gou, founder and chairman of Foxconn, the purpose of this action was to minimize the costs of labor and enhance the working productivity in the plant.

Rumor alert! Sony's PlayStation 4 is said to feature a motion control technology, and will hit the shelves by 2012.

DigiTimes reported today that Sony’s manufacturing partners will begin working on its next-generation game console later this year. Though further information are still unavailable, it is said that the rumored PlayStation 4 will feature motion controls like Microsoft’s Kinect.

Moreover, Foxconn and Pegatron Technology – which were previously appointed to manufacture PlayStation 3 – is said to create the upcoming PS4. With regards to the number of units to be released, DigiTimes cited that Sony will launch at least 20 million units by next year. As for Sony PlayStation 4’s release date, it is said that the company will not launch the console earlier than 2013.

With the high anticipation about the second-generation iPad, Apple aims to produce 6 million units every month. With additional manufacturers on the list, it seems that they are likely going to make it.

Apple believes that its anticipated iPad 2 will be more popular than the first model, as the Cupertino-based company is expected to order production of 6 million units every month. If rumors are to be believed, it would be significantly higher than the 4 million per quarter production of the current iPad. Overseas sources revealed that Apple added Chimei Innolux and Cando as additional panel makers for the second-gen iPad. These expanded number of partners will allow Apple to produce more iPad every month. Sources also indicated that suppliers will start shipments to the company by January or February of next year. They also pointed out that Apple has no intentions of producing a 7-inch iPad that is smaller and lighter than the current model.

Spotted! Two new cases claimed to be designed for Apple's iPad 2 suggests that the device will have a rear-facing camera, a SD card slot, and will be slimmer than the current iPad.

As spotted by iLounge, two new cases claimed to be designed for Apple’s iPad 2. Both cases show a rear-facing camera on the left side of the device, as well as a larger cutout on the bottom where the speakers exists on the first-generation iPad. The iPad 2 case from Shenzen MacTop Electronics suggests that the device will be slimmer than the current iPad. The one from Kodawarisan mentioned an SD card slot in its accompanying documentation, in addition to FaceTime. Does that mean that the large space where the speaker exists could also house a SD card slot?

The cases also show the same placements for the mute switch and headphone jack. However, no space is indicated for the rumored second 30-pin dock connector feature. One report this week claimed that Apple’s overseas manufacturing partner, Foxconn, plans to ship the iPad 2 within the next 100 days. It only means that Apple is getting ready and stocking up enough supplies for an April release.

It seems that Nvidia is ready to take the plunge into selling its graphic cards directly to consumers. But they do not have plans to take it outside Best Buy stores in the US.

Nvidia’s video card plans to go retail, but can only take as far as Best Buy in the US. Surprising as it sounds, Nvidia is going up against its vendor partners in its home turf. The thinking behind this, is that the majority of computer enthusiasts in the US tends to buy from an online source. Otherwise, they go to Best Buy and pick up a box with a label that they are familiar with.

As most of us already know, Nvidia relies traditionally on add-in-board partners to build and support the actual device. But the Green Team seems to be taking the marketing initiative into their hands.
