Apple orders 24 million iPhone 4Gs for 2010

Apple assembler Foxconn will ship 24 million iPhone 4Gs in 2010 alone according to some creative guesswork.

Digitimes, which probably spends a lot of time digging through dumpsters outside Taiwanese assembly plants, has gazed into its crystal ball, consulted a gaggle of 'experts', and jiggled about with its abacus to come up with the number.

Presenting the fantastic figures as fact, the Taiwan-based web portal reckons that the Cupertino Company will take delivery of 4.5 million units in the third quarter of 2010, and another 19.5 million by the end of the year.

The mole-bating tech site also reckons the new handset will come with new IPS (in-plane switching) panels with FFS (fringe-field switching) technology working at a 960×640 screen resolution.

The new phone, details of which have been widely leaked, is expected to be announced at Apple's developer shindig on June 7th.
