    Here's the thing though, even though the iPhone and Apple are being named as the one big company that Foxconn is associated with, that doesnt mean that the company is not involved in the making of products for many, MANY other tech companies out there. You would be completely kidding yourself if you think HTC, Samsung, etc dont use underpaid workers to assemble their phones. Heck, Foxconn is even involved directly with making Motorola phones. They also do business with Dell which uses android on new devices (such as the Dell Streak).

    So, just because Apple has been named as the main company that uses Foxconn for it's technology assembling, does not mean there arent other companies who are a customer of Foxconn that are associated with Android.

    Yes other companies are there as well but when you have a worker that lost an iphone and then kill himself your gonna stand out plus you love bragging how much ipad and iphone being sold someone or somebody got these workers working around the clock.

    Interesting.

    Chinas national suicide avg is 13.9 per 100,000.

    Foxconn has had 13 suicides and employs 800,000 people, most of which at its main plant.

    So really its pretty good. Also, the make products for Motorola, Microsoft, Cisco, Nintendo, and Sony. Not just apple.

    Really I think that China is going through its industrial revolution. Our labor laws were not what they are today when we were going through ours.
