Apple can't deliver iPhone 4G on time

Will have to delay worldwide sales

Apple is apparently having a hell of a job getting enough touch screens to meet demand for its 4G iPhone and might have to delay its worldwide release.

According to AP, Ashok Kumar, an analyst at Rodman & Renshaw said that there was a display production bottleneck which means that Apple has had to cut the number of iPhones it can ship each month.

Jobs Mob was supposed to ship four million units a month but has had to cut this back by half.
The New York-based analyst claims that the found all this out by ringing up Apple's component suppliers.

He said that demand for the iPhone is chasing supply on a near-term basis. Similar problems caused an initial slowdown in the production of Apple's iPad. More than 600,000 preorders were made for the iPhone 4 in a single day this week, a record, imposing a strain on computer systems and prompting carrier AT&T to suspend sales of the device before its June 24 debut.

There were similar problems in Japan where Softbank suspended advance sales of the iPhone as demand threatened to exceed supply. Kumar has warned that Apple could face a major risk as as demand for the older iPhone 3GS drops faster than the company can ramp up production on the iPhone 4.
