Apple Reaches New Altitudes

Demand for the iPhone 4 is pretty robust, and it will only pick up further as more carriers in more countries, such as China, pick up the device, Harry Wang, a director at Parks Associates, told MacNewsWorld.

Part of the reason for the backlog is problems with suppliers, Wang said.

"In terms of components -- screens, and maybe the chipset -- there are problems," Wang elaborated. "There could be a bottleneck in supplies of microcontrollers."

That might lead Apple to expand its capacity in the next two to three months, and Wang expects the bottleneck to ease toward the end of the first calendar quarter of this year.
