We’ve seen the BlackBerry Z10 from the inside out, but have you wondered just what it costs to actually make the device? There are various bits and pieces that go into making a BlackBerry, from the plastic enclosure all the way down to that red LED. The Z10 was pieced out and together all the components ring in at a total of $154 when all is said and done.

The 4.2-inch display for the Z10 costs around $26.50. The 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor costs about $23.50. The 8MP rear-facing camera and 2MP front-facing camera totals about $15. The 16GB internal storage costs around $9.00. The other components, including the battery, communication chips, and RAM total $21.00. Finally, the casing, as well as the other small electronics included in the Z10 total around $59.00.

The Blackberry Z10 is slightly more expensive to create compared to the iPhone 5, which costs about $139 to make. But in the Z10’s defense, it has a bigger, higher resolution screen, more RAM, and a bigger battery.

– Display and Glass (4.2-inches): $26.50
– Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 SoC processor $23.50
– Cameras (8MP back camera and 2MP front-facing): $15.00
– 16GB Flash storage: $9.00
– Other components (battery, communication chips, RAM): $21.00
– Remaining materials such as the plastic casing: $59.00

The Blackberry Z10 is expected to retail for around Rs 40,000 in India while the second Blackberry 10 device, the Qwerty keyboard Q10, is expected to make its debut in April, and its pricing is still to be revealed.

i guess….micromax is is the only consumer friendly good brand….which is perfectly stating the fact that major brands spend more money on advertisements and creating hype than actually making the product….


while making a product we also consider labour expenses i thought
