Unless you have concrete information about margins and hardware costs, his info is as good as yours.

Malfunctioning devices, inventory shrink (theft, misplacement) are always factored into the release, as 10-15% (due to the high profile of this item, closer to 20%) of the stock is expected to be lost or returned (with credit issued to retailers who beat those odds in a significant amount). Any retail manufacturer knows this before contracting out for retail stores to push their product.

Seriously: the revelations get worse and worse as it goes. Next they'll say they track women's credit card usage to tell when their menstrual cycles are when certain stores are visited. (Because you never know when new terrorists are being made in the bedroom.)
