Apple iPad 2 Teardown Analysis

Over the weekend, iSuppli gave the highly anticipated iPad 2 a full teardown analysis, revealing a bill-of-material (BOM) cost of $323.25 for the 32GB iPad 2 .

The chart above breaks down the component cost of each part inside the iPad 1 and iPad 2.

As far as total BOM cost, the new iPad 2 costs roughly ~$47 more in material cost than the previous iPad.  Most of this cost is related to a pricier LG display and touchscreen assembly.

Cameras were also added to the iPad 2, but some buyers were disappointed with the quality of these newfangled cameras, since they are the same low-res camera found in the iPod touch.
