While most Mac geeks were worshipping at the iPhone altar this weekend, we here at CNBC got some tech geeks to dissect an Apple iPhone for us (see video below). Called a "tear down", it's when you break apart a gadget to figure out what's inside, and how much those components cost. We got one of the top companies in this field--called iSuppli-to peel apart the (Apple) gadget for us.
Apple is raking it in, perhaps more than you would think. iSuppli says Apple is getting over 50 percent margins on the iPhone with the smaller memory, and even higher margins with the higher memory phones. And Apple isn't the only one cashing in: iSuppli uncovered which suppliers are making money on each handset sale. Samsung is the biggest winner making between 52 and 76 dollars per handset, depending on the memory of the phone.
