BusinessWeek on Apple’s Ambitious iPhone Plans

Peter Burrows, reporting for BusinessWeek:

While final sales can’t be known until after the fact, clues are emerging as to Apple’s production plans. As of mid-August, they were ambitious, BusinessWeek has learned. Apple plans to build 40 million to 45 million iPhone 3Gs in the 12 months through August 2009, according to a person familiar with the company’s plans.

That’s a pretty big number.
