Korean Carrier Vibo Getting Foxconn, Gigabyte & AboCom Androids


Unless you’re from Korea you probably haven’t heard of a local carrier called Vibo, but like everywhere else in the world, the company seems to be hot on Android. They just unveiled the Vibo A688 Android Phone which was manufactured by Foxconn – the same company which produces the iPhone for Apple.


But it doesn’t stop there: DigiTimes is reporting that the company is also in talks with 2 other manufacturers – Gigabyte and AboCom Systems, to produce additional Android phones for the carrier. Gigabyte is traditionally a computer manufacturer and Vibo is hoping these new partnerships will help them grow from 1.5 Million to 2 Million subscribers in 2010 while nearly doubling revenue.
