I find it hard to justify buying one of these e-readers especially when tablets are becoming increasingly cheap and you can put the Kindle software on it as well.

Very interesting slide show.  I have a Kindle Fire and definitely enjoy the package.  I have about 40 or so books downloaded.  The first week I had the device I dropped it down a flight of steps.  My first impression was I'm in trouble here and a great Christmas present was trashed.  To my surprise, there was no real damage at all and certainly none to the operation of the unit.  Very fortunate here.  I am amazed at the compact nature of these devices.  Excellent effort in engineering.

Interesting tear down, no really close close-ups

It was an interesting teardown and the chip numbers help to understand the complexity a bit. I do wonder about the cable that was dispensed with early in the process, what did it do and how was it connected, and I also wonder if thisunit was ever returned to functionality. That would be an accomplishment to brag about. And it is much more fun to see a tear down with somebody else's device, not one that I paid for.

Agreed, Rob. I really like the way iFixit starts their inspection with an examination of the exterior, and then works their way inside.

Another great teardown. This is quite a bit more complex than the Kindle teardown last week. It's fun to see all of the technological innards.
