So what kind of touchscreen does out have? Saw mention of the Elan components for a resistive touchscreen. Is this really a resistive screen with the life limitations and only single touch? Capacitive touch is certainly the expected norm in phones and tablets.

Hello Sanjib, in an earlier story, we estimated the BOM costs of the device to be $184.

Hello Chipmonk, it is DDR3. We were surprised that Google didn't go with a PoP version of the Tegra 3 and integrate LPDDR2. In this case, they are using 4 Hynix H5TC2G83CFR DDR3 DRAM chips.

The price of looks very attractive for a tab with a quad core processor, 1GB DDR3 and other features. This is going to be a big hit! Did I miss the BOM cost? Is there an estimate of BOM cost available? I think the margin should be very low like the same for Amazon's Kindle Fire...and it is mostly targeted to eat Apple's share by selling more of Google's Apps.

Allan : Could you pl. confirm the type of DRAM on board the Nexus 7. Is it really DDR3 per your comment above or are they still using LP DDR 2 like other Tablets ? Perhaps you can provide the Part No. as well, Thx.

@tecoholic - it's 1 GB of DDR3 DRAM. There are 4 2Gbit chips on the Nexus 7 board.
