The modern WSJ at work.

They probably sourced with a Digitimes report to boot.

(Didn't we just hear that Apple was expanding iPhone sales in China?)
So true... "Citing "people familiar with the situation", the Journal claims..." is a really solid attribution...

Well, to be fair, sources who are close to the iPhone front say they dispute these comments as invention (attributed to a couple of iPhone owners - nobody closer)...

Now we have Gizmodo quoting WSJ... so who's next and going to cite multiple sources in the know...
