“Apple is expected to build its first 3 million Verizon-compatible CDMA iPhones in December 2010, contacts in the company’s overseas supply chain reportedly indicated,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“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.”
