    iSuppli has published the BOM (Bill Of Materials) for the Nexus One which essentially lists all the hardware components that go into building the Nexus One. The grand total is $174.15 in supplies but keep in mind this does NOT include assembly, manufacturing costs, inventory costs, transportation of parts, etc… Here is the full list: Interesting [...]

    If a snapdragon was that cheap, why isn't it in more phones?
    Also, can't you buy a 4GB SD card for less than that retail?

    ...not bashing the validity of the report--these are honest questions.

    Are those prices what it would cost Joe Schmoe to buy single units of or is that the actual per unit cost HTC/Google paid? Because I would imagine the cost would come down quite a bit for a company ordering a million parts of something...

    Exactly, that's most likely the cost per unit assuming a very large order is placed.

    $30 for a 1Ghz Snapdragon? Hell, if buying more is going to result in much better returns the next-gen iPhone is sure to have a 1+ Ghz Snapdragon/OMAP processor in mid-2010 and each processor would be like $25 a pop! (assuming the discount can only go down so much before the manufacturer starts reaching the 0-profit margin)
