Pegatron or Quanta to be Apple's second supplier for the next iPad

Pegatron or Quanta to be Apple's second supplier for the next iPad
Besides Foxconn, which already has its hands full with Apple's next iPhone, and complains about its manufacturing, Pegatron or Quanta will be entering the game to help with both the next iPhone and the next iPad, it seems. Foxconn's factory in Chengdu had a fire accident in May, and that might have tipped the scale for Apple to look for a backup supplier, just in case, since the alleged September announcement is nearing.

Pegatron stands a greater chance, since it has allegedly already received the first batch of orders for the new iPhone, and now it might be giving a helping hand with the third iPad assembly.

The next iPad, which might end up called iPad 2 HD, or iPad 2 Plus, will supposedly feature a high-resolution display, double the existing one, and might be targeted more to the graphics-obsessed crowd, complete with special editions of graphics or video software for it. Someone was swearing that the next iPad will be 3D as well not long ago, but that's pretty far-fetched of a rumor for now, although it does tie-up with the target market of graphics/video buffs. Well, hopefully the guys at Pegatron are as leaky as the ones in Foxconn, when it comes to prematurely outing gadget designs to the world.
