Chinese Factories Can't Handle iPhone 5 Demand

Foxconn has admitted as much

|

Employer of the year Foxconn has admitted it can't keep up with demand for the iPhone 5, saying it's shipping 'far fewer' than requested.

The problem is, apparently, that demand is higher than expected and the device too fiddly to put together easily—especially given that the company's now got rid of all its nimble-fingered child workers, perhaps.
