Manufacturing Glitch Slows iPhone Production. Wanted to pass this along. No clue as to the quality of the source. From the article: We expect sell-outs and complaints about lack of availability of the phone. On this point, we have stumbled across some info that leads us to beleive that HonHai is having trouble manufacturing to schedule and is running behind due to some part delays. It appears that the initial 12 million unit run rate will not be available by June 15. Get your iPhone if you can Now I'm not experienced in large scale manufacturing, but is this entire first run for the US market? Or are they building 3G units for the non-US market at the same time? The US is getting them soon, Europe sometime in the fall and Asia in early '08. 10 million is the goal in '08 so why such a huge production run?
