Verizon iPhone 4 costs just $171.35

iSuppli, electronics market research company published results from a teardown study they did last week where the company has looked into the costs incurred by Apple in manufacturing the Verizon iPhone 4.

iSuppli reports Apple has managed to reduce the bill of materials (BOM) cost of the CDMA iPhone 4 comparing to the GSM version. While the GSM iPhone 4 costs Apple $187.51 to manufacture, the CDMA iPhone carries a BOM of $171.35, which is a good 9% less than the GSM iPhone.

Nevertheless, the teardown analysis shows an interesting perspective on the estimated profits that Apple stands to make from the sale of iPhone 4 and how it continues to reduce the cost of manufacturing an iPhone.
