Analysts Claim Palm Pre Costs $138 To Build

While it’s still not available to the public, that hasn’t stopped market research firm iSuppli from analyzing the build cost of the Palm Pre. iSuppli estimates the Palm Pre costs roughly $138 to build. Palm declined to comment on the story.

There has been plenty of speculation regarding the price of the Palm Pre. Some analysts claim the Pre could be priced as low as $150. If Palm were to sell the Palm Pre to Sprint for $300, the company could see a healthy profit with the build cost accounting for just 46% of the retail price.
