Foxconn CEO: iPhone 5 Will Put Galaxy S III to Shame
Posted on June 20, 2012 by eli courey
Not that I ever doubted the awesomeness of Apple’s next-generaion iPhone, but now I’m even more excited about the possibilities. Foxconn CEO Terry Gou made a bold statement at Hon Hai Precision’s annual shareholders meeting on Monday, urging customers to wait for the iPhone 5, saying that the new model will put Samsung’s Galaxy III to shame. Of course, I think the iPhone 4 and 4S both already put the Galaxy III to shame.
Gou said he has made it a lifetime goal to defeat Samsung — “a company with a track record of snitching on its competitors.”… He was referring to Samsung’s action in 2010 of snitching on four Taiwanese companies in an investigation by the European Commission on price-fixing in the flat panel industry…Samsung was exempted from the investigation by serving as a “tainted witness.” … Gou also urged consumers to wait for the launch of Apple’s iPhone 5, saying that the new model will put Samsung’s Galaxy III to shame.
