Apple iPhone 3G costs $173 to manufacture

Posted on Thursday, June 26 2008 @ 01:06:36 CEST by

iSuppli guesstimates the new Apple iPhone will have an initial hardware bill of materials (BOM) and manufacturing cost of $173:
"At a hardware BOM and manufacturing cost of US$173, the new iPhone is significantly less expensive to produce than the first-generation product, despite major improvements in the product's functionality and unique usability, due to the addition of 3G communications," said Dr. Jagdish Rebello, director and principal analyst for iSuppli. "The original 8GB iPhone carried a cost of US$226 after component price reductions, giving the new product a 23% hardware cost reduction due to component price declines." However, the figure doesn't include other costs, including software development, shipping and distribution, packaging, and miscellaneous accessories included with each phone.
