Does anyone else remember the flurry of pre-iPhone rumors back at the end of 2006? Here we are three years later, and history almost seems to be repeating itself with a veritable onslaught of rumors surrounding Apple’s fabled tablet computer.
Today, word is out that Cupertino is already placing orders for 10-inch tablet displays and glass panels.
TechCrunch is reporting that Foxconn, the Taiwanese electronics company that makes all those little iPhone 3Gs, is ramping up production of the device to 800,00 units a week. The information comes from a source close to Apple.
If the information is correct, Foxconn would produce 41,600,000 iPhones a year. That number shatters the estimated 25 million iPhones predicted to be produced over the life of the device.
With Apple planning to release the iPhone 3G in more countries, they may need the extra couple million.
