    This is AWESOME! As others and myself stated in previous threads, the phones are coming early 2011, per HP!

    I think the mods should consider pinning this in-order to save all the cliff jumpers and nagging naysayers.

    the rate and percent of suicides is actually quite small for that number of people. It was only news because it was related to the iphone

    I have never heard of the website that reported this and I have definitely never heard of foxconn, it seems strange that Palm now having a ton more resources would let others make their hardware

    This is good news, Foxconn builds quality hardware, but the phrase "in 2011" gives me the sinking feeling that it may be well into next year before we see anything ship.

    All I said was 'yes, that's them'. Here is the story if anyone is interested about the company size and suicide rate.
    Foxconn Suicides - Shenzhen Post

    Now we can stay back on-topic

    Yes, Foxconn is HUGE... but the upside is that they have the ability to turn new equipment incredibly fast. They are famous for turnaround speed and quality build for electronics. They build Apple's equipment, but they also build hardware for major Chinese phone companies.

    I don't know guys we cannot complain about wanting better hardware, and then when HP moves to one of the best known hardware makers (including Apple hardware) and we start complaining about how bad the company is.... will we ever be happy?

    It is nice to see quality coming, but that doesn't mean I support their (Foxconn's) methods. Too bad you can't have quality phones and a decent working environment for your workers.

    didn't foxconn manufacture the pre???
  16. #36  
    Nope, well, yes and no. It is part of Foxconn; a kind of subsidiary. It was not manufactured by the same part of Foxconn that made the iPhone. Plus being a manufacturer and being the designer are totally different.

    Well said. The Iphone hardware has been a trend setter, now some are complaining about HP partnership with its vendor....geee, just laughable.

    Please note: We all have work ethics and standards, and I do not agree or condone those management tactics used by Foxconn. I am far removed from the Chinese culture but I would say this starts at the top (government). Believe you/me if the US employer's weren't held to work place standards by law (OSHA/FMLA/Min Wage/Etc.), they would act the same way.
