Google Nexus Tablet Build Cost

The spiffy new Google Nexus 7-inch tablet has been favorably received and looks like it might give some serious competition for the Amazon Kindle Fire device. With both products being sold at such a relatively low price (around $200 here in the US), it was assumed that they were being sold pretty much "at cost".  In fact, some recent "tear downs" show the BOM (Bill Of Materials) cost for the Fire is now around $170 (down from $190 when introduced) and the Nexus is $150-160, depending on the model - so they are still making some margin on their hardware sales.
