CDMA iPhone shipments could reach 15 million in 2011

Verizon Wireless hasn’t even launched its iPhone 4 yet and rumored production numbers are already getting a rumored bump thanks to rumored strong demand. According to a new report from industry watcher DigiTimes, iPhone manufacturer Pegatron is ramping up CDMA iPhone production following a revised order from Apple. Apple is thought to have initially requested approximately 10 million CDMA iPhones from the company, but new deals in various regions may have caused Apple to increase its order. Now, according to channel checks, Pegatron will ship between 12 and 15 million CDMA iPhone units this year. Verizon Wireless is the only carrier known to be getting the CDMA version of Apple’s iPhone 4 at this point, and Foxconn is said to be building devices for the U.S. market — which would mean Pegatron’s upped production is the result of increased international demand. Total CDMA iPhone production between Foxconn and Pegatron is now thought to be between 27 and 30 million units.
