Apple Manufacturer Prepping 24 Million Next-Gen iPhones

Digitimes has reported that a Taiwan manufacturer, Foxconn, will ship 24 million next-gen iPhones by the end of the year.  That’s a curious figure and leads to possible discussions that some of these new phones may be headed to other carrier like Verizon.  What I mean is that Apple has only sold 50 million iPhones since 2007, so the fact that they may be ordering 24 million of their newest phone, leads one to believe that they may be selling the phone on other platforms.

It’s all speculation at this point, so maybe we will learn more on June 7th when the iPhone 4G should officially be announced by Mr. Jobs.  I’m still pretty certain AT&T has an exclusive lock on the iPhone through 2012, so maybe Apple is just being a responsible company and loading up on their new device for its adoring fans.  You’ve been made by child labor…
