The rumor mill is on the go once again, as its release date was teased with iOS 5's alleged production.

Japanese tech site – Macotakara – reported that Apple’s iPhone 5 has entered production, as manufacturers – Foxconn and Pegatron – have started assembling the next-gen handset. 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.

Macotakara’s latest report follows claims that an iPhone 5 prototype was lost in a bar, and that the said handset might hit the stores in October.

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.

ASUS is stepping out to be one of the largest tablet shipping company, as it doubles its shipping in early 2011.

ASUS’ shipping of Android tabletS might double before the year ends, causing the company to be one of the largest shipping company in the field of tablets. Once the company hits the chronic shortages, the shipments of its Android tablets like the Eee Pad Transformer will reach 1.2 million to 1.5 million in the summer — and could increase more in the coming fall.

Orders increased to as many as 4 to 4.5 million tablets in the first half of this year. This surprises even ASUS itself because the company just set a target shipping of 2 million tablets for the entire year. The 51.7 percent surge in the revenue of Pegatron, ASUS’ manufacturing partner, might be a direct attribute to the company’s increasing tablet sales.

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. But with Nintendo Wii U and Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox set for a 2012 release, Sony is in best interest to speed up PS4’s process to remain in the competition.

Other than these, no further details are currently available. But GADG promises to keep you posted, so just stick it here for more PlayStation 4 updates.

A new report says that Apple raised their orders of iPhone 5 units from 10 million to 15 million at Pegatron.

According to a report received by DigiTimes, Pegatron – an Apple manufacturer – received an order to produce 15 million units of iPhone 5. The report also said that the anticipated iPhone 5 will begin shipping in December this year.

The increase in numbers of orders from 10 million to 15 million units shows Apple’s bullish outlook on iPhone, after its record sales on previous months. The sales of iPhone increase to 113% year after year. In the first quarter of 2011, iPhone sales reached 18.65 million units. Experts expect those numbers to undergo a slight dip sequentially throughout the summer, before reaching another heights along with the launch of the next generation smartphones.

Meanwhile, Pegatron’s stock increased to 3.1% after the rumor about Apple’s order spread. The said increase is the largest gain in three weeks. The report also claims that the manufacturer is striving for iPad or MacBook orders from Apple. However, it must win Apple’s favor because “the products’ existing manufacturers are defending their orders.”
