Pegatron to start shipments of inexpensive iPhone, next-generation iPad mini in August, say Taiwan makers

egatron has landed orders for an inexpensive iPhone with plastic chassis and next-generation iPad mini from Apple and will begin shipments in August, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers.

In the first quarter, Apple shipped 37.4 million iPhones and 19.5 million iPads, with iPad mini accounting for around 12 million units and 9.7-inch iPad about seven million.

The upstream supply chain will start shipping components for the new iPad mini and iPhone in July and players such as chassis supplier Casetek are expected to strongly benefit from the orders.

A next-generation iPhone and 9.7-inch iPad reportedly will appear in early 2014 and will be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry).
