Asymco analyst Horace Didieu recently posted a report entitled “Predicting iPhone Sales for Dummies,” Based on sales data from all iPhone models to date and on the basis that they followed a specific trend as older generation production numbers transitioning into building the new model, Didieu forecasted that the new generation iPhone could sell 100 million units before the sixth generation appears.
Worldwide demand of smartphones has increased tremendously and is expected to push more than 500 million units over the next 2 years. Based on current trends, the current iPhone 4 will sell 60 to 65 million units as it approaches its final quarter of production life (assuming the iPhone 5 goes into production some time this year).
