It is a rift with Foxconn that is said to be behind the delay of next set of Apple tablets. iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 release date is pushed further due to strange reasons but seems that Apple has some issues with its iPad producing partner Foxconn that is forcing Apple to put the release of next iPads on hold.
International Business Times has reported that Apple doesn’t find Foxconn reliable after eight million users returned their iPhone 5 handsets raising scratch-prone issues. It was a huge setback for Apple that is losing its customer fast to Samsung, BlackBerry and Nokia. Foxconn has also hinted towards separation. Another reason for Foxconn parting his ways is that the Chinese manufacturer is also considering launching its wearable tech that would compete with Apple iWatch.
Foxconn works on Android handsets and it has developed an infrastructure and acquired technology required for making high-end gadgets. It is planning to launch its first device, a wearable tech, soon. Apple is also working on iWatch and after knowing that Foxconn is directly competing with iWatch, Apple sees no reason to continue business partnership with Foxconn. Who would be Apple’s new supplier isn’t known and until the new supplier is found, Apple won’t launch the new iPads.
Apple has reasons to delay the launch of iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2. Earlier the tablets were scheduled to be released in August-September. Then it is said that the iPads would be announced in October. But now it seems that Apple would unveil its tablets only after finding a reliable business partner. It is a infrastructure related issue and not a technical that is delaying the launch of tablets.

Samsung is going for mass production of Galaxy Note 3 from August. Korean ET news is reported saying that Samsung has asked its Asian partners to get ready to supply parts for Note 3. Unnamed Samsung sources have also confirmed the report. The news is significant for two reasons. First is the Galaxy Note 3 could be released in the IFA scheduled on first week of September and second the suppliers would get a boost.

Galaxy Note 3 is expected to get the same response the Note 2 received during its launch on IFA 2012. This time, Samsung seems to be in a hurry probably to provide some business to its suppliers or to take an edge over the competitors.
Sony Xperia ZU is the nearest rival of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 orange deals. Since Sony is going to release its next Xperia before August, Samsung won’t take much time in releasing Note 3 as it would harm its business interests adversely. But experts are of view both the reasons behind Samsung declaring mass production of its flagship Note 3 from August.
IFA 2013 would take place in Germany sometime in first week of September. It is the same place, where Note 2 was launched. Sony could launch Xperia ZU in its June 25 event or in July 4 event but no later than July event. Samsung would get one month’s time to prepare Galaxy Note 3 for release.
