BusinessWeek says in one of their articles (April the 13th) that Apple's subcontractor are having difficulties to build their wonderful phone, the iPhone.

Apple's declaration announce that they are putting more engineers on the iPhone project because they are afraid that there maybe some delays.

According to Jagdish Rebello, iSupply analyst, the iPhone suppliers were informed that the product may not be delivered until the end of June. "We're hearing it's mostly an issue with the complexity of the device, and that all the component suppliers are making their deliveries on time" says Rebello.

Normally, two months before being on the market, this type of phone should be going through a battery of test. Rebello says "It's clear they have found some issues that they need to fix."

Richard Doherty, director and co-founder of the Envisioneering Group, had a chance to test the iPhone and says : "Putting a powerful operating system on a phone took extra hands on deck. The last thing Apple wants is for the iPhone to be vulnerable to hacker attacks".

Apple hopes that the users will buys loads on internet through the phone, and so it takes more time to finalize than the others on the market (like Windows Mobile and Symbian). Doherty says : "They don't want it to be a version 1.0 of the iPhone, but version 4.9, Apple wants to get it right the first time".

Another question concerns the iPhone's battery : will it powerful enough to power up long enough the big screen and the other functions ? Will it be thin and light enough ?
