iFixIt Posts iPad 2 Teardown [Video]

iFixit has posted a teardown of the iPad 2 revealing its internal components.

A new model number graces the iPad 2: A1395. Thank you, Apple! That's much nicer of you than the twenty-six billion iterations of MacBook Pros you called model A1286.

Key Observations:
● As much as we hated trying to remove the clips in the original iPad, this much adhesive is even more of a pain. Be ready to crack your front panel if you dare open it!
● 3.8V, 25 watt-hour battery. Capacity of 6930 mAh.
● Broadcom BCM5973KFBGH Microcontroller used for touchscreen
● Broadcom BCM5974 CKFBGH capacitative touchscreen controller
● Apple 1GHz A5 Processor
● Toshiba TH58NVG7D2FLA89 16GB NAND Flash
● Apple-branded 338S0940 A0BZ1101 SGP
● Wi-Fi board; powered by another Broadcom chip, a BCM43291HKUBC
● AGD8 2103 gyroscope next door to the LIS331DLH accelerometer, both by STMicroelectronics.

iPad 2 Repairability Score - 4 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
● The LCD is really easy to remove once the front panel is gone.
● Only standard Phillips screws were used -- no Pentalobular or Tri-Wing funny-business.
● The front panel is now glued to the rest of the device, greatly increasing the chances of cracking the glass when trying to remove it.
● The battery is very securely stuck down to rear case, and you have to remove the logic board to remove it.
● You can't access the front panel's connector until you remove the LCD.

Ram? Why is the most allusive bit if information?
