UBM TechInsights, one of the tech UK company reveals the component cost for making iPhone 5 is less than US$168. It is US$35 more expensive compared to the cost of iPhone 4S. The higher additional cost is on the newer A6 processor US$28 and then the Qualcomm 4G LTE modem US25.
iPhone 5 is sold for US$649 worlwide, so you can imagine how much Apple made by selling the hardware. Anyway we are also paying for the sexyness, brand name and research cost right. Anyway I might get one anyway. he2
