Apple plans to make 40M iPhones in next year

Business Week has learned Apple plans to build 40 million to 45 million iPhone 3Gs in the 12 months through August 2009. The company boosted its production plans when the initial sales proved stronger than the company expected. However, much of the company's ability to reach that 40-million-plus goal is hinged upon the successful introduction of the phone in several countries by year end. And, perhaps more important, its ability to address complaints over the phone's performance.  Article
