• Have You Ever Wondered What It Costs To Make A BlackBerry Z10 Smartphone?

    Now that the BlackBerry Z10 is making it's way onto the worldwide market, and selling quite well, how much does it take to make a each device? After all, maximizing profit on the new BlackBerry 10 smartphone is going to be what propels BlackBerry into the future of mobile computing. CNN Money did a breakdown on the estimated costs of what it takes to make a BlackBerry Z10 smartphone:

    Display and Glass: $26.50
    Quallcom Processor: $23.50
    Cameras: $15.00
    16GB Flash Storage: $9.00
    Battery, RAM, ect: $21.00
    Casing, small electronics, ect: $59.00

    Total: $154.00

    There you have it... a total cost of $154.00. That's slightly over the cost of the iPhone 5, which is at $139.20. But BlackBerry also doesn't have Chinese child labor camps making every BlackBerry Z10 component (sorry, had to pull that one out). In all seriousness though, the Z10 does have a larger display, twice the RAM, and a larger battery. So that could contribute to the higher costs to make as well.

    With carriers coming in at $199 2/year contract, I'm sure there will be no issue with BlackBerry selling enough Z10's to make a pretty penny. Looking forward to the availability in the US Market starting next month.
