Considering the hefty price tag on the brand new Apple gadget, the iPhone 4, I'm surprised to hear that a single iPhone 4 costs $188 to make--this is "comically low," according to Mobile Crunch. The cost estimate comes from market intelligence company iSuppli.

Apple's efficiency in creating low-cost products and gaining immense popularity is definitely a marketing tactic they've managed to master. With a continuously growing fan-base, the Apple corporation should only be expected to continue growing in revenue and product features.
