Vincent posted on MYiPhone a calculation on how much iPhone could potentially brings in for Apple and AT&T based on recent report of iPhone cost.
Hot damn, what a hefty profit margin Apple and partner AT&T will enjoy. Based on iSuppli’s preliminary functional Bill of Material (BoM) estimate, the Apple iPhone will cost $229.85 for hardware BoM and manufacturing cost and a $245.83 total expense for the 4GB model. The 8GB Apple iPhone will cost $264.85 hardware cost and a $280.83 total expense. Apple and AT&T will split the profit of 50.7% for the 4GB and 53.1% for the 8GB at the $599 retail price.
