Foxconn says it is not making phone for Orange
Foxconn has responded to a Wednesday rumor by filing with the Taiwan Stock Exchange to deny that it has received orders for manufacturing Android-powered handsets from UK wireless provider Orange. The company said it does not intend to compete directly with its existing clients. The unnamed sources of the rumors are maintaining their story, saying the Foxconn and Orange deal was done through a third sales party.
The same sources go on to say that, thanks to such an arrangement, Foxconn can freely say that it has not violated its policy of not competing directly with its clients. [via Digitimes]
