The new iPhone costs Apple considerably less the original to make, according to a somewhat speculative analysis by Portelligent, an Austin, Texas-based teardown specialist.

David Carey, Portelligent’s president, told EETimes that based on what his firm knows about the components Apple (AAPL) is using, the bill of materials for the new phone could be as low as $100. The first iPhone, by contrast, came with a BOM of $170.

“Apple’s really taking the gloves off on this one,” Carey told EETimes.

Although the 3G and GPS chipsets in the new model add to its cost, Apple is saving on other components, says Carey. The display that Apple paid an estimated $60 for last year, he says, may cost it half as much this year, thanks to a learning curve and engineering changes. The $100 Apple is charging for the extra memory in the $299 16GB model probably costs the company $20.

Portelligent’s conclusions are only guesses, of course, because the company didn’t actually have an iPhone 3G in hand to tear down.

Still the profit margin on the iPhone 3G is probably quite handsome, even by Apple’s rich standards.

AT&T (T) and the other carriers could be subsidizing the $199 sale price by $200, according to Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster, which means Apple may be charging its partners as much as $399 per phone.

“If these numbers are true,” writes the Yankee Group’s Carl Howe, “the iPhone 3G could end up being the most profitable product Apple makes.”

The iPhone doesn't support "true 3G" speeds, rather it is running on the AT&T HSDPA network which qualifies as "3.5G." In addition, the tech specs say that you'll need iTunes version "7.7," which has not been released as of yet. The camera is the same 2.0 mp that we see on the "old" iPhones.

Assuming you can actually get your hands on one, here's what you will find in the box:
iPhone 3G
Stereo headset with mic
USB power adapter
Dock Connector to USB cable
Cleaning/polishing cloth
SIM ejector tool (also known as a 'paperclip')

The new iPhone 3G will be available in 70 countries later this year, beginning with customer availability in 22 countries—Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the US—on July 11. It will sell for $199 for the 8GB model (black only) and $299 for the 16GB model (available in black or white).

“Just one year after launching the iPhone, we’re launching the new iPhone 3G that is twice as fast at half the price,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPhone 3G supports Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync right out of the box, runs the incredible third party apps created with the iPhone SDK, and will be available in more than 70 countries around the world this year.”
