iSuppli has already revealed that the Nexus One parts cost $174.15 and the iPhone 3GS $178.96 (including manufacturing), but the Droid? Thanks to a recent teardown, we now know Motorola's more generous, with parts totaling $179.11.

If you add in $8.64 for manufacturing the Droid, the final cost is $187.75. Breaking it down, the 16GB microSD card it comes with costs $35, the LCD screen is $17.75 and the extra sheet of material making the touchscreen a capacitive one is another $17.50. If you've been tossing up whether to get a Nexus One, iPhone 3GS or Droid, I doubt the extra couple of dollars in value will sway you much, but it's very interesting to see just where Motorola's spending the money.
