Pegatron Rumoured To Start CDMA iPhone 4 Production In November

Taiwan-based hardware manufacturer Pegatron are set to begin manufacturing CDMA iPhone 4 devices in November.

CDMA compatible iPhone 4 devices will be able to run on Verizon Wireless' mobile networks.

Citing industry sources, Digitimes said that the company will begin volume production of the iPhone 4 in November, with shipments reaching 3-4 million units within the first three months, slated to reach 10 million by mid-2011.

The sources said: “With shipments of iPhone 4, and orders from Asustek Computer, Acer, Toshiba and Sony as well as tablet PC orders from HTC, Pegatron is expected to snap up handsome profits in the first half of 2011.”

The Digitimes report coincides with an earlier report released by the tech website, which said that Verizon will start selling the iPhone 4 on 11 January.

An analyst with Susquehanna Financial Group has told a group of investors that Apple hardware partners will begin manufacturing around 3 million CDMA iPhone 4 units for an early 2011 launch.

As of now, Verizon Wireless has refrained from commenting on the rumours but continues to hope that it will get to offer the smartphone on its new 4G network in the near future.
