The demand for the Microsoft Surface device was less than expected
According to the source, referring to words of representatives of the supply chain, the company Pegatron Technology recently faced a decrease in orders for the Assembly of smartphones and laptops. This is because Apple has not yet released the iPhone the next generation, and the demand for the Microsoft Surface device was less than expected.
Because the interest of buyers to the device family Surface significantly undermined by the availability of similar products in the range other manufacturers, Microsoft is placing fewer orders to build than initially hoped in Pegatron.
The effect of Surface Laptop shown in the illustration will be reflected in financial performance from Pegatron, not earlier than in the third quarter, suggested by industry sources.
In General, Pegatron rely on the preservation of the performance of the second half of 2017 at the level of the same period last year.
