After winning an order to produce 15 million iPhone 5 units, Pegatron will likely land another order to manufacture the iPad 3 as well, according to CENS.

Exclusively handling assembly of iPhone and iPad and production of related parts, Hon Hai, the world's largest electronic manufacturer by revenues, has dominated the supply chain for a time.

Hon Hai is likely to turn Apple's another contract order for iPad 3 manufacturing over the Taiwanese counterpart, as the customer has considered looking for a second iPad supplier to reduce over-dependence on Hon Hai, especially at a time after an explosion accident occurred at the firm's Chengdu factory in May.
