Nokia's (NOK -15.7%) Lumia 900 phone is a big money-maker for Qualcomm (QCOM). iSuppli's teardown of the Lumia 900 turns up five Qualcomm chips - a baseband processor, a Snapdragon apps processor, an RF transceiver, and two power management chips. Micron (MU) flash memory and a Broadcom (BRCM) Bluetooth/Wi-Fi combo chip is also found inside the 900, which has an unsubsidized price of $450 and an estimated manufacturing cost of $217.

    I've heard it has NFC capability. Is it NXPI's?

    This is MSFT's work, MSFT is defining the hardware going in to WindowsPhone devices.

     

    I highly suspect Nokia isn't all that happy with using QCOM products considering their very antagonistic history...

    I think QCOM is the exclusive processor supplier for Nokia phones. At least that's what MSFT intended. Any word on NFC?

    I believe WindowsPhone doesn't currently support NFC, so I would expect this device not to have it.
