Thanks to everybody for sending these in. Not sure how we missed it but according to BusinessWeek the firm iSuppli gutted the Bold and found that the parts cost $158.16 and with the assembly cost should total $169.99. That is a pretty penny compared to the $103 spent on the Curve but nothing compared to the $799 that it is going for on CompUSA’s website. I thought BestBuy was a bit high but $799 is unbelievable. Even the internal AT&T docs revealed a non commit price of $549.99.
Interesting to note in the iSuppli tear down of the Bold:
- A Marvell chip that runs wireless connections and applications – Price $34
- Surprisingly the camera in the Bold cost RIM almost $10!!!
- Samsung Screen (Gorgeous) costs $16
- Samsung Memory that cost $10.45
