Foxconn's Work Force Struggling to Cope With iPhone 5 Demand

By Gary Cutlack on at

The Angry Super Teenage Workforce of Chinese tech assembly specialist Foxconn is struggling to build Apple's iPhone 5 quickly enough, with the company's chairman saying his factories are "falling short of meeting the huge demand" for Apple's latest mobile.

The quotes come from Foxconn chairman Terry Gou, with his words backing up the company's previous complaints that the iPhone 5 is the hardest thing the company has ever had to assemble. So don't be surprised if Apple soon starts to struggle to maintain stock of its latest model as we head into the bonkers Christmas money-splurging period. [Reuters]
