Microsoft, Apple tablets have most profit margins

24 November 2012 No Comment

Research firm IHS says Microsoft and Apple are garnering the highest profit margins for their tablets, followed to a lesser extent by Google and then Amazon.

Microsoft’s first self-made tablet, the Surface, costs about $267 in parts and labor when excluding its optional keyboard cover. It went on sale Oct 26 priced at $499, for a profit margin of around 46%. Surface comes with a 10.6-inch (26.9-centimeter) screen measured diagonally, and can access the Internet only through Wi-Fi. The price is for its base model with 32 gigabytes of memory.

With a similar configuration, the Surface bakes in more profit for Microsoft than Apple Inc. did when it released its third-generation iPad in March.
