Apple Increases iPhone Supply Orders By 20%
via AppleInsider: "Demand for the iPhone 3GS this holiday season is expected to cause a shortage of image sensors, as Apple has increased orders for parts for its handset by 20 percent.
According to Taiwanese trade publication DigiTimes, OmniVision Technologies, the manufacturer of CMOS image sensors used in the iPhone 3GS, has warned its clients that there will be a limited supply of hardware during the holiday season. Supply constraints are pinned chiefly on demand for the iPhone 3GS, and are not expected to relax until late November.
"Apple has increased fourth-quarter orders for the iPhone 3GS to its Taiwan-based manufacturing partners Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) and Primax Electronics by 17-20%, noted the sources," the report said.
Apple officials said in the company's fourth quarter earnings call that they intend to meet overwhelming demand for the iPhone 3GS in the coming holiday season."

Migrating to the Bold 9000 brought us into a new era where "do it yourself, with buggy "leaked" OS's became the norm. No longer interesting in paying for a BB, that I then had to keep trying to find the right OS version for, I put up with it for nearly a year.
Thanks to RIM chasing me away, I discovered the iPhone3Gs was everything the first and second versions should have been. In addition, by that time I was so fed up with RIM I was ready to make nearly any kind of compromise in email functionality just to get a phone that was ready to use out of the box, and built to a high quality standard.
My iPhone3Gs has served me very well. It's the best thing that RIM ever did for me.
i think it is a good decision that Apple has increased fourth-quarter orders for the iPhone 3GS to its Taiwan-based manufacturing partners Foxconn Electronics and for this many people will now enjoy the facilities of iphone
