iSuppli: Google Nexus One’s hardware components cost $174.15

Launched by Google four days ago and available only online for the time being, the HTC-made Nexus One Android smartphone has a BOM (Bill Of Materials) of $174.15, says iSuppli – slightly less that the Motorola Droid / Milestone ($185).

Of course, the $174.15 price includes only the Nexus One’s hardware components, and leaves out costs related to R&D, software, accessories and so on.

Unsurprisingly, the most expensive component of the Nexus One is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor – iSuppli estimates that it costs $30.5.

Next on the list is the 3.7 inch WVGA AM-OLED touchscreen display from Samsung: $23.50. Samsung is also the supplier of the Nexus One’s 4GB NAND Flash memory, which costs $20.40.

Synaptics is providing the multitouch capacitive touchscreen technology that goes with the Samsung OLED display, for $17.50. Unfortunately, multitouch on the Nexus One is not enabled.

Other components: 5MP autofocus camera ($12.50), Bluetooth / Wi-Fi transceiver from Broadcom ($8.20), 4GB MicroSD card ($8.50), 1400 mAh, 3.7V battery ($5.25).

Currently, the Google Nexus One can be bought only in the US, the UK, Hong Kong and Singapore. If you’re in the US, you can buy it for $529 (unsubsidized), or for $179 with a 2-yr T-Mobile contract agreement. Verizon will be the second US carrier to support the Nexus One (a CDMA / EV-DO version of it), while Vodafone will offer the handset pretty soon, too, in the UK and other European markets.
