Tim Culpan, Bloomberg:
A decline in revenue from the iPad Mini â€œis more on demand, while price has been stable,â€ Pegatron Chief Executive Officer Jason Cheng said. â€œNot just tablets, also e-books and games consoles, almost every item is moving in a negative direction.â€
No CEO of an Apple supplier talks specifics, so Philip Elmer-Dewitt asked Pegatron CEO Jason Cheng for clarification:
“After the meeting, one reporter from Bloomberg approached me, trying to dig out detail numbers about some specific product. I clearly refused to comment on specific products, nor customers, even though he continued with other questions. I did say those words that he quotes me in the article “more on demand, while price has been stable”â€¦, “almost every item is moving in a negative direction”â€¦; “Not just tablets, also e-books and games consoles”. But I did not say anything associated with any specific products.
Pegatron CEO Jason Cheng did not say demand for the iPad mini is down.
