The iPhone 4 has been a runaway success. Apple said that they have received more than 600,000 pre-orders of the iPhone 4. One of the main highlight of the new iPhone is the Retina Display. The Retina Display of the iPhone has a resolution of 960×640, which is the highest ever found in a mobile phone. Now it looks like there is a shortage of the IPS panel based Retina Display of the handset.
Mr Ashok Kumar, who is an analyst at Rodman Renshaw, said that the production has been halved due to the shortage of the display.
Kumar said Because production will be about half, a lot of demand will be left unsatiated.
Apple had planned to produce around 4 million iPhone 4s per month, but thanks to the shortage of displays, the output has now been halved to 2 million. Apple still has not confirmed the news so we shall take this news with a pinch of salt.
