Taiwanese carriers can't meet iPhone 4 pre-orders
Taiwanese customers placed 200,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders, yet carriers fear that only about one-fourth of those orders will be filled by the end of the year.
iPhonetouch.Blorge reports that Apple's three Taiwanese carrier partners, Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan Mobile and Far EasTone, had access to a mere 1,800 iPhone 4s when they finally became available on September 15th. Additionally, the carriers expect to receive no more than 50,000 units before the year's end.
Meanwhile, the chairman of manufacturer Foxconn told the press that his company is pumping out 1.5 iPhones per second -- that's about 137,000 units per day -- to keep up with the enormous global demand. In fact, Foxconn recently bought 1,000 special machining rigs at $20k each to help them stay on track. Most manufacturers own one. Unless they're on Kamino.
Remember that "antenna issue" that was supposed to doom the iPhone 4? Um, yeah.
