As we all know, NTE has world class manufacturing facilities, Apple is not the only game in town, it would be exciting to hear that other outside opportunities are being explored and that having Apple as a end customer should add creditability to BTE capabilities.
Now, wouldn't it be great if NTE got involved with Google's smartphones?
MOTOROLA PEELS AWAY MYSTERY OVER "HERO PHONE"
RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. — Folks have been wondering what Google will do with Motorola Mobility, the venerable but struggling phone maker it acquired about a year ago. While short on specifics, some details began to emerge Wednesday night at the D11 conference here.
Motorola's Dennis Woodside confirmed Motorola is working on a "hero phone" known as Moto X which would compete against iPhone and Samsung Galaxy devices. The handset is part of a complete overhaul of the Motorola-branded lineup that is expected to arrive this fall. Woodside conceded Moto has only 3% market share worldwide, and given the slew of Android devices, gaining mind share is an enormous challenge.
Moto X has a chance to stand out because it will be "contextually aware." For example, it would be able to detect if it's in a car traveling 60 mph, and behave accordingly. The technology sounds intriguing and potentially useful, but we'll have to see how it works in the real world.
Interesting article, could be a game changer, Jared, you still around, what are your thoughts on this?
There are plenty of other opportunities besides Apple. Growth forecasts for the global smartphone, tablet, and automotive display markets are extremely strong.
Smartphones - Global shipments for 2013 forecasted at 937M units increasing to 1.45B in 2016
Tablets - Global shipments for 2013 forecasted at 265.5M units increasing to 579.4M in 2017
Automotive Displays - Global shipments forecasted to grow to 70M units by 2016, from 49M units in 2012.
An industry with these growth prospects provides plenty of opportunities for NTE to continue to secure additional production opportunities. Mr Koo has been successful for many years in this business, IMHO, he will continue to secure profitable business for NTE, as the industry as a whole continues to grow.
