Pegatron technologies has received an order form Apple inc to manufacture a small volume of iPad 3 launching in March. Apple has reportedly revamped the company’s outsourcing strategy and will have Pegatron focus on production of the iPad series, with Foxconn serving serving as an auxiliary in 2013. Foxconn‘s primary focus will be the iPhone, with Pegatron only producing a small number of smartphones. The new strategy is meant to decrease risk and increase the quality of products.

Apple executives have also visited Pegatron’s plants in China several times. We may expect that Pegatron also receives massive iPad 4 order with an October launch.
