  • 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.

      To be honest, all this commotion about the iPad coming out and everyone being excited about it is.. well how do i put this, STUPID! All i see the iPad being any use at all, is in the hands of a visually-impaired person. It IS a giant iPod. It has the same features as an iPod, well a couple more at that - and the fact it doesn't have a camera for, what is it, $499 dollars? thats about 328!! It is just a waste of money for whatever it is useful for.

      All-in-all people are saying it is a brilliant piece of equipment. But all i can see it as is just a very expensive, very large iPod for people with a very big income and a very small brain.

      No no no, the ipod is a "TINY IPAD"! Get it right, you are the one that over paid for a tiny screen.

      Dude it's getting really old with the whole "big ipod" comparison, we all know what the iPad is, we don't need people coming on here to bash it. If someone wants to buy it then that's their choice, they know what they're buying. You may think its a waste of money but to others its not. What's the point of bashing on it? You think you're going to change ppl's minds about purchasing one? It's pointless...

      I'm getting sick of the "large iPod" comments!!! We get it already! If you think it's funny, then laugh! But, don't repeat the same lame *** joke on this forum. It's REALLY getting old. Your mother should have raised you better if this is what you come here to say!

      I don't think people are saying it look like a big ipod touch as a joke. they say it cause it does. so sober up from the apple loving kool aid and relax. I really like apple and if they released the ipad before the touch it would be the coolest thing ever. Now its just something to play with if you have the extra money. fortunately I do and get mine tomorrow!!!

      I don't know I mean most people that found this site are in tune with apple products and its a waste of money at 499+tax but 199+tax would be better deal on the ipad IMHO. Its about common sense not if you have extra money to waste.

      Well, that wouldn't make any business sense at all. It cost them about $250 to build the base model.

      Problem is:

      repeating the same lame comment/opinion... because really that's all it is, but really my point here is that if you keep posting this "opinion", now that is what's a joke!!! You aren't the first one to point this out. So it's not funny anymore. And if you ordered one, "as you say" you have, then i feel sorry for you. Because to me, that would really make me feel stupid and cheated if i ordered one and that was my opinion about it. Point made!
