Femtocell prices have dropped below US$100, says vendor

The new price point will help femtocells take off, according to Ubiquisys

A more realistic price would today be about $200, according to Tiller.

Those sentiments are echoed by Malik Saadi, principal analyst at Informa Telecoms & Media. With the volumes currently shipped $100 sounds reasonable if it was just the bill-of-materials, and not the whole femtocell, he said.

But Ubiquisys is not budging.

"I am not surprised that this comes as a bit of a shock to many in the industry, but we have received the first order at the sub-$100 price point," said Keith Day, vice president of marketing at Ubiquisys.

Also, the products aren't sold at a loss. Ubiquisys is too small to try to buy market share, according to Day.
