New iPhone parts already shipping?

iPhone Parts Shipping

The various components that will go into the 2009 iPhone are reportedly being shipped for assembly. The Taiwan-area newspaper Commercial Times claims that multiple suppliers are sending their parts off for the widely assumed June launch and that shipments of iPhones themselves could range between 2-3 million in the quarter following Apple's launch; it's implied that some of these may include old models being cleared out.

While not verified, the timing would sit roughly in line with typical production schedules, which often require substantial lead times to both gather parts and produce enough devices to satisfy expectations for the initial launch. Just last week, Taiwan's OmniVision is said to have received an order for 3.2-megapixel cameras to be used for the next iPhone.
