Palm Pre production cost estimated to be $138

Posted on Thursday, April 30 2009 @ 00:01:20 CEST by

Research firm iSuppli guesstimates the Palm Pre smartphone costs around $138 to build. The most expensive part of the phone is the screen and components related to it, iSuppli claims these parts cost around $39.51.
And while it's hard to predict demand for the Pre, preliminary analysis suggests Palm (PALM) will make a healthy profit from the units it does sell. Judging from a preliminary estimate by market researcher iSuppli, the Pre will cost about $138 to build. That would amount to 46% of the $300 iSuppli expects Palm to charge Sprint for the device; Sprint is likely to sell the handset for $200, after a $100 subsidy, iSuppli speculates. Palm declined to comment on iSuppli's analysis.
