Amazon spends $207 to build a Kindle Fire HD, which means the company is still losing money, but not as much as it did with the original Kindle fit flop singapore
ire, according to the results of a teardown by research group IHS.

The company broke down the cost of a low-end $199 Kindle Fire HD — which has a 7-inch display, 16GB and is Wi-Fi wireless only — in its report. The report says materials and production costs Amazon $147. IHS estimates that the added cost of other expenses liflip flops

software, licensing, or royalties, would put the device’s cost at $207.

The company was able to make the Kindle HD Fire for less than its predecessor despite having better features like increased memory, a better processor, and the addition of a camera, IHS noted. Analysts found that Amazon was able to save the most money on the display, even though there is an increase in resolution. It also saved money on its touchscreen system.

“Overall these are all progressive incremental changes, with nothing revolutionary added,” IHS Senior Principal Analyst Andrew Rassweiler said. “However, these features allow Amazon to offer a better feature set for less cost than the last version of the Kindle Fire, while maintaining the ‘magical’ $199 entry point at retail.”

Here’s the full breakdown:


Rassweiler also noted Amazon’s 8.9-inch 32GB version with Wi-Fi gives Amazon a better profit margin because it has a higher markup incrementally, a tactic that’s similar to Apple’s approach to pricing. The 16GB and the 32GB versions have a $70 difference, whereas the 7-inch model has a $50 price difference between those two memory options.

“Amazon has taken an interesting twist on the ‘memory upgrade for dollars’ approach that Apple pioneered with the iPad line,” Rassweiler said.

The difference is even starker with the 8.9-inch with LTE in 32GB and 64GB, which has a difference of $100 in its retail price.

Score one for Samsung Electronics.

After several legal defeats resulting fit flop singapore
n a product ban, Samsung finally got a court to side with it. The company said that the High Court of England and Wales ruled that its Galaxy Tab did not infringe upon Apple’s tablet designs, and found 50 different recognizable traits.

The victory is a measure of relief after a few rough weeks in which a U.S. judge ordered a ban flip flops

The moves are part of a broader legal skirmish between the two largest smartphone makers in the world, and part of Apple’s legal campaign against Android and any company supporting the operating system. Apple and Samsung have lawsuits filed in different courts around the world, and are looking for a ban or decision so devastating that both companies will be forced to sit down and work out a resolution. So far, both sides have only seen minor victories.

Apple declined to comment on the ruling, but reiterated its claims about the similarities between its products and Samsung’s lineup.

“This kind of blatant copying is wrong and, as we’ve said many times before, we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas,” said an Apple representative.

Today’s ruling affects three versions of the Samsung tablet: the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, and Galaxy Tab 7.7. Differences the court cited were the thickness of the devices, front and rear surface designs, and lack of physical buttons.

Samsung said it had requested this voluntary trial to get ahead of Apple’s claims that Samsung’s tablets copy the iPad and its design. Samsung said it welcomed today’s ruling.
