    Bold's Build Cost

    Advertisement



    Here's an article I picked up off the financial wire I found somewhat interesting.

    Goes into the detailed cost for RIMM to build the Bold, as well as it's financial impact (and storm and flip) to RIMM. Little bit of financial/stock analysis at the end too. Interesting read if you're into that stuff (as I am).

    Since I'm not a level II, I can't paste it as a link. Maybe another member would be so kind as to check it and then re-post it as a link for convenience.

    Damn.. More than I thought... The bold feels pretty good in the hands... But it still feels "squishy"... Only very slightly... Specifically the "back" and "menu" buttons...

    My next upgrade with AT&T is not until the end of March (so I'm one of the few that probably doesn't mind all these delays). Being as the time is within sight, I can't justify (to my wife) paying for an unlocked version now. But it would be nice if they would at least release it so I can play with it myself and decide if that's truly what I want, so I can either continue dreaming, or move on to dreaming about some other BB yet to come.

    I'm lucky in this respect, my wife had her Blackberry before I did, and it was her that demanded we go buy the big screen TV as we were browsing in Best Buy one random day last year.

    I really can see her point about waiting for a subsidized bold, even I can admit that spending 400-500 more to have it a few months early would be a bad move in my particular circumstances. Now if <oops> I killed my current berry tomorrow she'd probably go buy an unlocked one for me as a surprise. She rocks like that.

    I guess we have to remember marketing, staff wages, development, buildings etc. etc. on top of that price.
