Foxconn: Apple TV reports inaccurate

Foxconn has formally denied reports that Chief Executive Terry Gou made statements confirming the company is preparing for production of the Apple TV.
In a statement issued on The Next Web, Foxconn said any reports suggesting the company confirmed it is preparing for a specific product were not accurate.

"At no time did [Gou] confirm that Foxconn was in development or manufacturing stages for any product for any of its customers," Foxconn said. "He did say that Foxconn is always prepared to meet the manufacturing needs of customers should they determine that they wish to work with Foxconn in the production of any of their products."

The statement was issued in response to recent media coverage following a report by Chinadaily.com, which said Gou had confirmed preparations for the Apple TV, along with certain features the phone would have, including aluminum construction, Siri, and FaceTime video calling.

Full statement:

In remarks at a media briefing during the groundbreaking of Foxconn’s new China headquarters in Shanghai on May 10, Terry Gou, Foxconn’s Chief Executive Officer, made it very clear that he would neither confirm nor speculate about Foxconn’s involvement in the production of any product for any customer because Foxconn’s policy is not to comment on any customers or their products.

At no time did he confirm that Foxconn was in development or manufacturing stages for any product for any of its customers. He did say that Foxconn is always prepared to meet the manufacturing needs of customers should they determine that they wish to work with Foxconn in the production of any of their products. Any reports that Foxconn confirmed that it is preparing to produce a specific product for any customer are not accurate.
