A great brand, maybe, but how long can Apple maintain charging a premium?

I would be interested in the breakdown of the touchscreen/cover glass. How does the estimate $7.50 get split between the two items: 50/50, 80/20, or something else? Although, doing a little research, and this link seems to indicate (assuming this is what Apple used) to that the touchscreen/cover glass are an integral unit: http://www.corning.com/specialtymaterials/products_capabilities/iox/ioxvsdiscrete.aspx

Not just brand but integration and finish. Some poopoo that as not valuable but using and touching an Apple product is unique and worth the price IMHO.

Wow - that is very small. Apple does enjoy hefty margin because of great brand.
