Hot off of the presses from CENS, comes news that Taiwan-based Hon Hai Precision Co., Ltd (now the largest electronic manufacturing service IN THE WORLD) will ship a CDMA version of the iPhone to Apple come 2011.
The manufacture of the device has reportedly been split evenly with Hon Hai’s buddy Pegatron, who will cease his duties saving the planet from evil robots, just so you can enjoy an iPhone on an operator other than AT&T. He’s such a great guy, Pegatron.
Speaking of operators, the article also states that “Apple will launch the phone in early 2011 in cooperation with a couple of telecom companies as Verizon and China Telecom”. So there you have it, more fire for the rumour that is the Verizon iPhone. Not long now, it seems. Not long now…
Hon Hai are planning to ship 15 million units in 2011, but between his helping old ladies cross the street and destroying ninja-bots, Pegatron expects to only ship 10 million.
