iPhone 5 Sporting Tosh Screens?
The new Japanese factory is going to cost the bargainous price of 100 billion Yen (Â£757 million) and will be built next year. The tech base will double Toshibaâ€™s current monthly production capacity of 8.5 million units.
Apple will be chipping in with some cash which should guaruntee the fruity ones first place in the queue when production starts – probably the iPhone 5 will be looked after first.
Naturally both parties are remaining quiet about this. This could be a touchy (sorry) subject for Tosh employees as the new Ishikawa plant could be a nail in the coffin for the company’s low-temperature polysilicon LCD panel facility in the same area. Let’s hope that they’ll just be transferred to the shiny new building 🙂
