Nokia N8 Components cost 187USD (Same as iPhone 4 16GB) says iSuppli

A tear down of the Nokia N8 by El Segundo, California-based iSuppli has revealed an estimated components cost of 187.47. The iPhone 4 out of interest cost 187.51. Shockingly 4 cents difference in production whilst final cost of the N8 is around 549USD (much cheaper elsewhere btw if not buying from Nokia.com) whereas the iPhone 4 is 748.99. Over priced, over inflated iNess anyone?

The estimate doesn’t include costs for items such as labour, shipping, advertising, software development, patent licensing and general R&D.

According to Bloomberg,

“Samsung supplied the 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen, similar to that used in its own handsets,”. I wonder where the E7 screen came from. hmmm…

The camera component cost apparently 31.08USD, a bit of difference from Eldar’s 70EUR estimate.

    If you’re an Apple investor, iPhones are great! Apple is raking it in! Yeeeah!

    If you’re anyone else in the world (that’s most people), iPhones are a HUGE rip off, especially when as everyone knows N8 has a FAR better camera, more colourful screen, loads more features and a much better OS. Thank you Nokia!

    I don’t think the E7 display is from Samsung. The display is not pentile matrix, and SAMOLED is pentile. Also the camera unit costs a lot less than expected. I wonder why…
