  • Naked Pictures of iPad on Internet


    image via Engadget

    The first iPad teardown photos are finally available (and no, we're not talking about the April Fool's Day prank from iFixit), courtesy of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Though specific information about the componentry is unavailable - thanks to a little government Photoshop work with the numbers stenciled on the chip surfaces - we do have our first look inside the new device.

    Apple had filed for FCC approval in just enough time for the iPad to be approved for sale in the US. And as is not unusual in the case of new products, the FCC granted Apple's request for confidentiality, even after the authorization was approved. No information other than the frequencies used was revealed at that time: the photos and the user manual were all embargoed.

    The FCC just revealed its teardown photos of the device, though with the chip numbers removed it's difficult to glean much information. The case appears to be very sturdy, in line with observations made by people who have handled an iPad, with rib-like reinforcements on the case-back (which is apparently just as shiny on the inside as it is on the outside). The logic board (pictured above) nestles in one upper corner, with the modem in an apparently custom module that fits in the other corner. The WiFi and Bluetooth radios share a strangely-shaped long, thin module that runs the length of the iPad, with antennas on the top, middle, and bottom of the device.

    Head on over to Engadget to take a look at all the pictures.

      For all of you say it's a waste of money... we get it, you don't want one and think its lame.... now ffs get a life and move the puck on!

      The iPad is a very smart piece of kit if you ask me. It has it's niche and from pre-sales I think it is filling it nicely. What would you rather have on a plane, your bulky laptop that has a battery life of prob about 3hours when watching a movie, your ipod touch/iPhone with their tiny screen or an iPad? What would you rather have on your 1hour train trip to work? What would you rather have while on that road trip? For me the iPad is the answer to all of those questions. The interface is simple so it would be good for your grandmother that wants to get on the web but isn't sure about big computers. It's battery life is great, size is small enough to pack yet big enough to use easily, and the user experience is A+ from what all the early reviews are saying. I won't be picking one up now but may in the future.

      So all that being said, if you don't want one, don't like it, don't think there's a use for it do me a flavor.... stop what you're doing... bend over...wayyyy over... insert head up rectum.... thanks.

      Bravo! Bravo! Well said. Can't we all just imagine all benefits VS. the limitations? I totally agree with all your points.

      The iPod touch is not an "iPad mini"!!! stop saying this it's driving me mad! It would only be classed an iPad mini if the iPad came first!

      Also, iPhone3G[S] and steve-z17 - please stop arguing with me saying

      you may love the iPad and maybe think it's the best thing ever, but i don't - and people have a freedom on forums to express what they believe and think about products that the forum is basically for. (without sounding too much like a hippy!)

      Everyone has a right to express their feelings on things about something and this is me doing it about an iPad.

      If you reply to this, arguing then i think that is just pathetic and needy as you cannot accept what other people think about something. I hope you understand this before you rant at me.
