Friday, March 9, 2012, 11:36 AM ETThe 16GB 4G version of the new iPad will have a component cost of $310, or 49% of the device's $629 price tag, estimates UBM TechInsights. That makes it more costly to build than a comparable iPad 2 (AAPL), whose components account for 44% of its cost. The new iPad's high-res display, estimated to cost $20.50 more than the iPad 2's display, stands to affect margins for both Wi-Fi and 4G models, as do higher assembly costs.
