Pegatron executives must be pretty pleased with themselves for having received notebook orders from HP, which will definitely add to the company’s bottom line for the year after also accepting earlier orders from Toshiba and Acer. Just in case the name Pegatron sounds very familiar to you, this is because it is one of Apple’s manufacturing partners, and was linked to the iPhone 5 sometime last year – which eventually as we know, did not arrive, as the iPhone 4S made its debut instead.
While Pegatron shipped around 15.7 million notebooks (maximum last year), their projected figure would be anywhere from 19 to 20 million units for this year. Asustek maintains their position as Pegatron’s largest client, with Toshiba right behind, followed by Acer, Fujitsu and Lenovo. I guess HP must have been rather pleased to see Pegatron’s work with their Ultrabooks to offer them even more work this time around. Well, Pegatron also has a stranglehold on Apple’s iPad and iPhone orders, biting into Foxconn’s orders, which will certainly see company revenue rise as Apple’s two most popular products continue to garner interest worldwide.
