Cost price of iPhone 3G S

By , June 26, 2009 12:25 am

iSuppli has once again dissected the iPhone and analysed the BOM and manufacturing cost. At a cost price of US$178.96 and the retail price at US$199, it seems that the margin for the phone is extremely low. But do note that US$199 is what consumers pay to the mobile carriers. Behind the scene, mobile carriers had actually absorbed much of the cost, but made their earning thru monthly subscriptions.

Windows 7 to Windows XP downgrade will be available till April 2011 or until Windows 7 SP1 is released, as according to the latest unofficial statement from Microsoft. Prior to this, the downgrade was only available for 6 months after Win7 launch (April 2010), where OEMs can still sell PCs installed with WinXP. After the expiry date, OEMs can only sell Win7 PCs.
