Pegatron has reportedly landed orders for the low cost iPhone with plastic chassis and the next generation iPad mini, reports DigiTimes. The company is set to begin shipments in August, according to Taiwan-based suppliers.
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.
