Apple raises 2011 Q1 iPhone shipments estimates to 21 million units: Verizon iPhone, CDMA version and White iPhone hopefully included!

December 27, 2010, By Shawn Wagnon

The news coming in from the sources at Apple is that they have spiked up their initial estimates of 19 million units of iPhone 4 that were scheduled for shipping in the first quarter of 2011 to a figure of 20-21 million units. The news is that the extra sets that are destined for shipping will be the long-awaited CDMA iPhone 4 devices that are going to end up both in the Asian and the US market. So will we finally see the Verizon iPhone? It seems about time really…

The extra units are obviously going to be CDMA and while many believe that that means the US market will get the long-awaited Verizon iPhone 4, some think they could all very well end up in the Asian market leaving the ones back home very disappointed. But common sense would have it that some of those will end up with Verizon for sure and would be sold out even before you can say ‘Verizon iPhone’!

That said, we are still waiting for that white iPhone. Yes, it is not a big deal, but we really would like the pristine white set rolled out and hopefully Mr. Jobs can get his guys to paint white for once. Seems like Apple are going to carry forward the great year they had in 2010 and it might be long, long time before that bubble bursts!
