According to iSuppli, the Nokia Lumia 900 costs more to make than Apple’s iPhone.

Nokia and Microsoft seem to be aiming to entice other hardware manufacturers by demonstrating that a full-featured smartphone can be built using components that are about a generation behind the current high end, and therefore cheaper

Apple’s 16GB iPhone 4S model costs an estimated $188 to build and retails for $200. Most of the Lumia’s components are about in-line with that of the iPhone, except the cost of its screen is more, even though it has a lower resolution.

The Lumia 900 has a 4.3-inch ClearBlack Amoled display, an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera lens, and a high capacity 1830 mAh battery.The Lumia 900 sells for only $99 with a contract with AT&T. As of now AT&T and Canada are the only lucky to have the Lumia 900 but we can see see T-Mobile and more seeing the Lumia 900 in late Summer.
