Apple hopes to sell 20-21 million iPhones in Q1 2011 (CDMA models included)

The number of iPhones sold around the world each month has been constantly on the rise, ever since the first Apple smartphone hit the market.

But the real madness started with the launch of iPhone 4 – so it’s no wonder that Apple has great expectations when it comes to iPhone shipments in the first quarter of next year.

According to DigiTimes, Taiwan-based component suppliers say Apple has hiked the Q1 2011 iPhone shipments goal to 20-21 million units, from 19 million units initially.

Reportedly, 14-15 million units will be GSM/WCDMA iPhones (iPhone 4, of course), while 5-6 million should be CDMA iPhones – for Verizon Wireless, and maybe for some Indian carriers, too.

GSM/WCDMA iPhones are currently produced for Apple by Foxconn only, while CDMA models are (will be) made by both Foxconn and Pegatron Technology.
