Rumor Watch: Analyst Claims 10 Million 3G iPhones on the Way


While I’m sticking to my original guess that we won’t see a new version of the iPhone until June to coincide with the final release of the 2.0 firmware and enterprise support, everyone’s starting to agitate for a 3G iPhone sooner rather than later. First it was Kevin Rose, and, continuing the cycle, a credulous analyst has entered the fray.

Gartner’s Ken Dulaney, citing foreign sources, says 10 million 3G iPhones have been ordered by Apple for delivery in the near future. He cites European demand for greater data speed as driving Apple’s decision.

Then again, he also says the next iPhone will have an OLED screen which…ain’t happening, not in this life. We should be in for a couple of fun months, though.

    Why is an OLED iPhone so inconceivable?
