According to the folks over at iSuppli, Motorola’s current jewel, Droid, has a $187.75 Bill of Materials (BOM) and manufacturing cost. It breaks down to $179.11 in terms of electronic components, and $8.64 to manufacture. These figures only cover the cost of component and manufacturing costs, they don’t take into account the expenses such as software and royalties. Those figures are awfully close to its closest rivals, such as Google’s Nexus One ($174.15) and Apple’s iPhone 3GS ($179). Who do you think will be the victor in the end?
