Foxconn says it's not quitting the channel

Victim of Taiwan's rumour mill
Mon Jun 29 2009, 16:12

SPECULATIONS about Foxconn quitting the channel are false says the company's sales team, hitting back as rumours of the firm's channel demise do the Internet rounds.

Andrew D. Ouyang and Sidney Tsai of Foxconn's sales team told Aussie-run hardware site Tweaktown that the rumours were in fact merely that, adding "we're still here."

Whisperings that started two or three months back persistently suggested that the firm would be cutting its losses on its own range of retail motherboards and products, but the firm insists it is still developing and selling its wares.

True, the firm has kept its head down lately, plugging more efforts into sales than marketing and with a greatly diminished presence at Computex 2009 in Taipei - perhaps contributing to the rumour-mill - but this apparently was more of an effort to rein in expenses.

The firm says it is trying to keep several of its upcoming offerings under wraps for the time being, but also says it is indeed continuing to make new products and will be offering them to punters soon enough. µ
