Apple iPhone and iPad Manufacturer Foxconn Invests Big In Camera Maker GoPro

Foxconn has announced that it has made a significant investment in the small digital camcorder maket GoPro. GoPro has been around for a long time and makes some of the most popular ruggedized digital cameras on the market. The scammers often used for action sports such as auto racing, mountain biking, and lots more.

Foxconn has invested $200 million in GoPro to purchase 8.88% of the company. The $200 million purchase will also get Foxconn founder and CEO Terry Gou a seat on the GoPro board. The investment made by Foxconn values GoPro at $2.25 billion.

It would be no surprise if Foxconn also gets to start building the GoPro cameras considering Foxconn's manufacturing prowess. However, that has not been confirmed. Terry Gou added, "I saw a great opportunity in investing in GoPro, not only the company's product lines but also the man who is running the company. The first time I saw Nick Woodman, I immediately knew he was an outstanding entrepreneur who has the caliber to be very successful in this business. And together with Foxconn, the outlook of this company is even brighter as we commit to helping it achieve its fullest potential."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
