HONG KONG (Reuters) - Shares of Foxconn International Holdings Ltd (FIH) (2038.HK), the world's biggest contract maker of cellphones, fell 3.5 percent on Tuesday after it posted its worst-ever first-half net loss due to dismal orders.

The stock was set to open down 3.5 percent at HK$2.78, underperforming the Hang Seng Index's .HSI 0.4 percent loss.

FIH on Monday blamed its poor earnings on sluggish orders from key clients such as Nokia Oyj (NOK1V.HE) as a global economic slowdown takes a toll.
