IHS iSuppli says Nexus 7 costs $152 to build

by: LucianJuly 12, 2012

A few days ago we had an initial prediction of how much it costs to build the Nexus 7 from iFixit, which said that the components alone should cost around $184.

As Android becomes a larger and larger project, that needs to work on hundreds, if not thousands, of hardware configurations, Google is focusing more and more on compatibility, and a little less on raw performance. Android 4.0 came with some significant performance improvements thanks to enabling the GPU to do the graphical hard work, instead of leaving it to the CPU as before, but I’ve always thought that the ICS version was more about looks rather than raw performance.

ICS brought a pretty big overhaul in the looks department, made everything prettier and more polished, but this also requires a bit higher resources to make it all work properly, especially in [...]
