Foxconn churns out '150,000' iPhone 5s a day

22 million by year's end

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The word out of Taiwan is that the iPhone 5 is now being churned out of Foxconn Electronics sweatshops factories at a rate of 150,000 per day, and that five to six million of the li'l fellows will be shipped by the end of September.

Not a bad run-rate for a product that has yet even to be announced by Apple – although the recent "iPhone, iPhone, who's got the iPhone?" missing-prototype farce in San Francisco is all the Cupertinian acknowledgement one might need.

The high-volume production report comes from those ever-gabby "industry sources" cited by DigiTimes. According to those same sources, Foxconn will crank out 22 million iPhone 5s in the fourth quarter of this year.

Pegatron Technology will also be contributing iPhones 5s to the mix, but DigTimes sources say that Foxconn will be the sole supplier until 2012, when Pegatron's shipments will kick in.

Exactly when the iPhone 5 will become available hasn't been revealed, but the smart money says expect it during first week of October.

But if you're a Londoner, don't try to be first in line: überfanboi Rob Shoesmith already has you beat. ®
