Report: Ten million 3G iPhones ordered by Apple

Next-gen iPhone could also include OLED screen

The launch of a 3G iPhone looks more likely than ever, according to Gartner analyst Ken Dulaney who claims Apple has already placed an order for ten million of the second-generation handsets with an Asian manufacturer.

Dulaney cites sources in Asia, and suggested the order for ten million units of the new model was in addition to the ten million V1 iPhones Apple has ordered.

3G iPhone coming this summer?

As reported by iPod Observer, the new 3G iPhone could also include an OLED display. This would make for a thinner device with longer battery life.

The analyst claims Apple has accelerated development of the new model in reaction to weaker than anticipated sales in Europe, where potential consumers aren't satisfied with the EDGE data connection offered by the first model.
