If rumors are to be believed, it would be significantly higher than the 4 million per quarter production of the current . Overseas sources revealed that Apple added Chimei Innolux and Cando as additional panel makers for the second-gen . These expanded number of partners will allow Apple to produce more every month. Sources also indicated that suppliers will start shipments to the company by January or February of next year.

    While Apple’s suppliers may need a little time to double their current production levels, they will eventually hit the 6 million unit clip. The more interesting point in this discussion is not Apple’s production capacity but the very wide divergence between sales projections coming from analysts and Apple’s own apparent assessment of demand (twice that of the analysts). That kind of gap would seem to imply significant price cuts and/or killer enhancements that go well beyond the incremental upgrades currently envisioned. Suppose we get a combination of the two. This will be a slam-dunk that will leave any would-be competitors gasping and Apple in a very dominating position in the mobile device market. Which is just what Steve J wants.
