Foxconn may sell own branded accessories after Apple profits dip - Page 2

post #41 of 43

As expected, another 'unnamed executive' mentioned as the source for more unverified information..

 

These unamed executive sources sure have big mouths. Doesn't make sense to me. What is the purpose of some person relaying company secrets without letting them quote you? What do these ghost sources get out of this? Does the WSJ pay these sources, that they don't, won't or can't name, for this BS?

Uh-oh. My first thought was that FoxConn is going to pull another Samsung, and start leveraging their intimate knowledge of Apple devices into a competing line of their own. Perhaps tailored to the Chinese market at first. [Edit: whoops, guess I should have read page two of posts first.]

You may be wrong about that.
