The guys over at iSuppli have been calculating the costs of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet, and it seems it costs around $205 in parts, although it probably costs a fair bit more to make when you take into account the labour and development involved in it.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab sells for around $600, so even when you take into account all the other costs, Samsung are still making a healthy profit on each one sold.
The Galaxy Tab carries a Bill of Materials (BOM) of $205.22, significantly less than iSuppli’s $264.27 estimate for the 16Gbyte 3G version of the iPad, based on the preliminary results of a dissection conducted by iSuppli’s Teardown Analysis service. However, the reduced cost is largely the result of Galaxy’s smaller and lower resolution display compared to the iPad.
