The total manufacturing cost of the Torch comes down to $171, with another $12 added in for manufacturing. The highest cost was for the displays, $34.85. That's a low profit margin for sure, but first weekend sales are also estimated at around 150,000. That's not bad by any stretch of the imagination, especially when you consider the fact that RIM is being subsidized by the carrier to some extent.
