Foxconn iPad deal

A few days back, we had seen that Foxconn had proposed a deal to Apple that it will set up a manufacturing plant in Brazil to manufacture the iPad, that has taken the world of tablet computers into his hand for a few years. But now, it seems like Foxconn’s dream may not come true in the near future, Reuters says.

Reuters says that the deal is “stagnant,” due to tax breaks, insufficient skills of Brazilians to manufacture iPads, and the country’s untapped infrastructure to name a few.

“Yet the idea for a “Brazilian iPad” prompted immediate skepticism back home, where factories have struggled for years with high taxes, an overvalued currency and a lack of qualified workers due to poor education and a tight labor market.

The expected start date for production was first set for July, then delayed to November. Now, it is unclear whether the project will ever get off the ground, at least in the form that it was originally envisioned, the officials said on condition of anonymity.”

Until all this is taken care of, I dont think there will be a Made in Brazil label on the iPad.
