Sichuan quake disrupts high-tech production
Intel, Microsoft and Motorola among the affected
The tragic 7.9 magnitude quake which struck China's Sichuan province on Monday, claiming more than 13,000 lives, has also disrupted production in several tech factories in the region.
Intel, Microsoft and Motorola plants in Sichuan are off line and analysts are expecting them to be up and running in a few days, or up to a week in the worst case scenario. Intel has around 2,000 employees in the region, while Motorola employs 400.
Motorola also donated $268,000 to the Sichuan province authorities in cash and communications equipment.
