“Analyst Jeffrey Fidacaro with Susquehanna Financial Group said in a note to investors on Wednesday that checks with overseas suppliers indicated Apple is prepared to build 3 million CDMA iPhones in December, keeping the device on track for an early 2011 launch,” Hughes reports. “That would put total GSM and CDMA iPhone production for the quarter at between 21 million and 22 million.”

Hughes reports, “For the current quarter, suppliers reportedly said that Apple is set to build between 18.2 million and 18.4 million GSM-only iPhones. Fidacaro noted those numbers are ‘well above investor expectations,’ because display panel constraints with LG Display have been resolved.”

MacDailyNews Take: If true, the main reason for people to settle for fake iPhones will soon evaporate.


  1. All the AT&T bashing. I switched from Verizon to AT&T in 2007 for the iPhone after being a Verizon/Bell Atlantic Mobile Customer since 1994. I have never had a problem with AT&T service and don’t have any problems now. AT&T service is equal to what my Verizon service was. Having had both I don’t understand the AT&T complaints.
