Skyworks gets production order for ‘unnamed forthcoming multimedia, music platform’ (Apple iPhone?)

Apple Store“Chip and component maker Skyworks has delivered profit of $12.2 million in the first three months of 2007, a giant step up from the $0.9 million recorded for the same period of 2006,” Compound Semiconductor reports.

“Overall sales for the two periods were similar, down from $185 million in 2006 to $180 million in 2007, with the lower revenues and higher profitability both resulting from Skyworks departure from the non-GaAs baseband market,” Compound Semiconductor reports.

“Skyworks’ president and CEO David Aldrich said, ‘Skyworks’ second fiscal quarter results demonstrate the strength of our new business model and reflect our efforts since exiting the baseband product area two quarters ago,'” Compound Semiconductor reports.

“The company’s highlights for the quarter featured the inclusion of the company’s Helios devices in a number of popular phones, such as LG’s Chocolate, and receipt of production orders for an unnamed forthcoming multimedia and music platform – possibly Apple’s eagerly-anticipated iPhone,” Compound Semiconductor reports.

  1. Just a thought, I wonder where Apple gets all their boxes and documentation for new products printed. You never see any leaks through what should be conceivably be a high-risk leak area.
    Is it possible they get them printed in-house?

  2. I thought Foxconn/Hon-Hai produces the iPhones.
    ISTR a report of pre-iPhone-announce-times, that Foxcon had received an order for 12 million “devices” (to-be iPhones).

    Ah, here it is:
    Skyworks probably only produces a single component. I’ve got too little understanding of the technologies behind mobile phones to make a usefull guess about just what component exactly it might be.
    See their website for yourself.
