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.
