Apple to build CDMA iPhone in December

Apple [AAPL] could start building the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 beginning in December this year. Apple Insider is reporting that the company will be getting 3 million of the said handsets ready for a launch in early 2011.

Analyst Jeffrey Fidacaro with Susquehanna Financial Group said in a note to investors on Wednesday that checks with overseas suppliers indicated Apple is prepared to build 3 million CDMA iPhones in December, keeping the device on track for an early 2011 launch. That would put total GSM and CDMA iPhone production for the quarter at between 21 million and 22 million.

This information of course, hasn’t been confirmed by Apple, so we’ll have to see how things pad out over the next few months. If a Verizon iPhone 4 does arrive early next year we’ll probably get an announcement just weeks before the launch.

We’ll keep an eye out on the “rumours” to see if we can figure out which ones are correct or not.
