Samsung Galaxy Tab costs $215 to manufacture

So you’re paying $699 for your Samsung Galaxy Tab, and reading the headline above will surely send your blood boiling. After all, iSuppli claims that the Galaxy Tab only costs $205 in terms of materials (as we mentioned earlier), while costing $215 to manufacture. No prizes for guessing that cheap labor is involved during the manufacturing process – after all, what isn’t made in China these days? That leaves it with more than a hundred dollars for sales and marketing coupled with its profit. Obviously, the most expensive part in the Galaxy Tab would be its 7-inch display and NAND Flash memory, carving out $57 and $51 chunks, respectively.
