At a guess they will have added things that caused a loss in market share compared to of tablets like 4G etc.

Sending it off to recycling would be a shame, Jenn. I feel like saying, "Give it to me. I'll put it back together!"

I agree, Rob. The printed circuit board looks tiny -- must be about 1" x 3".

Tear downs make great artwork.  There was as store window that had a "tear down" of a motorcycle in Asia recently (can't remember the exact city).  Each piece was suspended from the ceiling with wire.  It was beautiful.

If Allan frames his tear downs, he could have a side career as an artist!

Why the Timing?

This just seems so odd to me. Why would Apple release the iPad 4 and the iPad Mini on the same day? Furthermore, I have not seen any advertising for the iPad 4. Anyone have any insight/opinions as to the timing of this release?

Interesting question Rob! I'd like to see this pile of parts put back together, but sadly, I'm pretty sure it gets sent to the electronics recycling bin.

This is an interesting teardown. It's surprising how small the actual brain is for the Apple iPad 4. So what happens after the teardown? Is the product re-assembled for use?
