Apple's iPhone profit margin greater than 50%
Each 8GB iPhone sold by Apple Inc. puts $333 more in the till than the device cost to build, a market research company said today after tearing apart the new phone.
El Segundo, Calif.-based iSuppli Corp. calculated the bill of materials and manufacturing costs of the $599 8GB iPhone as $263.83, giving Apple a profit margin of nearly 56% on the device. The tear-down analysis only spells out what's inside the iPhone, component prices and estimated cost to make; it doesn't take into account research and development or marketing costs.
