Google destroys the Android fan myth that the iPhone is too expensive

From ZDNet

"For years the Android fanboy argument has been that the iPhone is too expensive and that Android offers them a way to get a high-end smartphone for a fraction of the price.

Go to one of the many OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) out there, such as Foxconn, with an idea of what you want your bill or materials to be, and after making a few spec-related choices, you'll be ready to go with your very own smartphone design.
