Foxconn to send Apple 400,000 iTablets in Q1 2010, say moles

Another day, another Apple tablet titbit for the eager masses. Today, it's been claimed that the product will be delivered by Apple's chosen manufacturer in Q1 2010 - just the timing you'd expect for a device announced at the Macworld show in early January.

Moles cited by DigiTimes claimed said producer is Foxconn - aka Hon Hai Precision. Foxconn will source the iTablets 10.6in display from Innolux, they added.

Back in July, DigiTimes sources said WinTek had the iTab display contract, so either Apple has switched suppliers or there's a question mark over the reliability of the moles. We know which of these options we favour.

Foxconn has also been named as the Apple tablet's producer in the past, though since the company also makes iPhones, iPods and Macs for Apple, it's one of the more obvious choices for the iTab.

Foxconn will punch out 300,000-400,000 iTabs initially, the insiders suggested.

Expect Apple to promote the device's facility for e-book viewing, internet connectivity and long battery life, they said. ®
