iPod nano BOM estimated at $43

Written by Fudzilla staff


No reason not to sell it for $149 though
iSuppli’s crack team of beancounters has announced that the bill of materials (BOM) cost of the new iPod nano is just $43, making it the cheapest nano to date.

The teardown revealed that the priciest components were the 8GB flash module and 512Mb SDRAM chip, with a total cost of $14.40. The screen ranked second at $11.50, while the processor costs just $4.95. Manufacturing cost is estimated at just $1.37.

The 8GB nano costs $149 in retail. Material and manufacturing costs make up for 30 percent of the price, so it’s safe to say that Apple’s margins are quite healthy.

I'd do the same thing in their shoes. People buy it at that price, why not sell it at that? It's not as if anybody from this site would buy it even at a lower price...

Of course we wouldn't, when we can do same thing for way less money :D Just plug some earphones in the phone, add 8GB card, and there you go.. Not to mention there are cheap Chinese MP3 players if you really want one. It's not like it's anything important that should be payed THAT much :D

That is exactly what I did: the 8GB card cost me €17. And that was well over a year ago…

Plus, I only have to carry around a single electronic device.

I refuse to pay triple for a product made in China. Also, the "Assemble in California" kind of misleads alot of people into thinking it was made in USA (Nice moves Apple, they won't suspect a thing).
