Apple reduces iPhone sales forecasts?

Sales below forecasts for iPhone? The rumor, which has been bouncing for several days, is taken up in another light by the Taiwanese Digitimes site. According to what the web source claims, which has solid antennas in the assemblers field, the confirmation would come from the reduction of orders for the quarter ending in March.

According to what some companies operating in the field of components would have reported, the Cupertino company would have substantially halved its projections for the quarter of March, bringing them from two to one million, maximum 1.2 million units.

The Digitimes attributes to the lack of enthusiasm of the Europeans, rather lazy to grab the phone, the reduction of the forecasts. Apparently, at least always according to the website, the fault lies with the tariff plans, long-term contracts, the cost of the telephone and the lack of 3G support.

For the sake of completeness of information, we recall that in several countries phones similar in price and technology to iPhones are offered with equally similar (if not more unfavorable) tariff plans and with comparable durations. Apple in the recent tax report also specified that the target of 10 million phones by the end of 2008 will be respected.
