$187.51 + Apple pixie dust = $600 (plus app $, music $, book $ and iAd $)

An iPhone 4 costs Apple about $187.51 but brings Apple $600 plus who-knows-how-much in ancillary revenue for apps, music, books, and iAds.

I despise Apple’s closed-source, proprietary nature, but I sure admire its ability to exploit Americans' tech device fetish.
