What's more impressive is how the phone was created with manufacturing costs totaling $8, according to IHS. Less expensive components that achieved comparable functions equal out to $209. In comparison to other Android phones such as the Samsung S II Skyrock's $236 cost of materials, the Nokia Lumia 900 can hit the market for a retail price of $99 with contract.
"With the Lumia 900, Nokia, Microsoft and Qualcomm have taken a page from Apple Inc.'s playbook by closely tying together the hardware and software to produce a full-featured smartphone that is based on relatively inexpensive electronic components," said Andrew Rassweiler, senior principal analyst of teardown services at IHS, in a statement.
"The Lumia manages to stay inexpensive without being cheap, according to IHS findings. Its efficient design means that it was able to function on 512 megabytes of dynamic RAM instead of 1 gigabyte and use a single-core processor from Qualcomm instead of the dual- and quad-core processors in many of today's leading handsets," added IH.
