Just a few days ago, we brought you word that Foxconn is said to have put in a bid for the 4G spectrum in Taiwan, but today, it will be news on a different front. There was a report which was published in China on Tuesday, touting that Foxconn’s recruiters have begun to kick off the hiring process on a large scale, especially at the plant in Zhengzhou, which is in the Henan Province. Speculation is rife that this boost in the workforce would be to have those new employees kick start the next generation iPhone manufacturing process, where some have dubbed it to be the iPhone 5S, while others claim that it should be the iPhone 6. Our arms are still up in the air as to what the next generation iPhone will be called, but as the Bard once said, a rose by any other name, would smell just as sweet.
What do you think? Is this boost in Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant the ominous sign that the iPhone manufacturing machine is starting to crank itself up? Only time will tell.
