Default Foxconn closing down retail channel? Truth or FUD

There have been a lot of rumours circulating Foxconn's channel business for quite some time, but it now seems like they're all coming true, as Foxconn has finally decided to pull the plug on Foxconn Channel which is the division that makes Foxconn's retail products.

Foxconn never quite got its retail motherboard business off the ground, despite several promising products, the channel division was plagued by production delays which resulted in disgruntled partners and potential customers.

Many products barely made it further than to the press release stage before being superseded by another product that promised more and better features. The products that made it out on the market were often not live up to their claims and weren't competitive enough compared to more established brands, both in features and pricing. However Foxconn did gain a following of enthusiast users on some of its high-end models that proved to be good overclocking platforms.
