Pegatron tapped for CDMA iPhone in November

Pegatron has been identified tonight in a story as the contractor making over three million CDMA iPhones at the end of the year. The Taiwan firm would start in November and make at least three million to four million iPhones in its first three months. Production would top 10 million by mid-2011, according to DigiTimes' contacts.

The claim expands on a similar one made in the summer and potentially corroborates stories of a January launch with Verizon. At 10 million in the first several months, Apple may be unlikely to expand its sales beyond Verizon in the early stages as the production wouldn't be enough to support a second large CDMA carrier like China Telecom or Sprint.

Publicly, Verizon has downplayed the need for an iPhone but has also expressed hope for it. Its sincerity has been difficult to gauge as the company would have an interest in keeping Android phone sales strong during the holidays.

    Based on recent comments by Seidenberg, I wouldn't be surprised if at least some of these CDMA models were heading to Sprint. Dan Hess has always spoken of Apple and the iPhone with respect and envy. Seidenberg repeatedly puts his foot in his mouth.
