Apple to ship over 86 million iPhones this year? According to the Taiwanese daily DigiTimes, Apple will ship over 86 million iPhones by the end of the 2011.
DigiTimes, using supply chain checks, says the company will ship 86.4 million phones, up 81.9 percent year-over-year (YoY).

Analyst Luke Lin does say, however, that other companies are growing shipments at a much quicker pace, including Huawei at 484 percent YoY, ZTE at 330 percent YoY, LG at 250 percent and Samsung at 191 percent YoY.

Nokia was the big loser of the year, falling from 100 million to 74.4 million.

Huawei?? More like Hua-gives-a-crap? 484% sounds insane until you realize that they only sold maybe 10,000* units last year. Big whoop!

If the iPhone 5 is a game changer and available on all carriers finally, then Apple might have a good shot at that number.
