It seems inevitable now: We could be just weeks or even days away from finally, officially learning theres a CDMA-compatible iPhone for the Verizon Wireless network.
Apple has ordered a spectacular 20-21 million iPhones from its Asia-based manufacturers, according to an article in Taiwan-based Digitimes. If that number is even close to accurate, it would represent a huge increase in iPhone shipments over 4Q 2010, up from 15.5 million units. And considering that the holidays are behind us, theres really no reason to expect an increase other than a second U.S. carrier and perhaps more worldwide getting its hands on Apples darling.
Specifically, the sites sources say Apple has ordered between 5 and 6 million CDMA-based iPhones to be launched in North America and Asia Pacific in the first quarter.”
