Well its obvious isn't it. Squeeze cheap Chinese labor a bit more, get the phones manufactured 1/6th of retail price. Then say, Apple is SO GREAT, it makes SO MUCH MONEY. LOL!

this is the reason why i dont have an apple product...first i can get waht i want on a different device w/out paying more...and base on thier profits, they are getting more on what you paid for...meaning those extra profits are not being spent on your device...but still its up to us consumer to an intelligent consumer...dont just buy for the sake that you love the item...make sure its worht yoyr money...

This is an unethical practice by Apple. Apple is ripping people by charging extra. Its my personal opinion but they should earn a reasonable profit. They should bring the price down and sell more units. The profit level will remain the same or may increase aswell.
