Anything that is new, especially Amazon’s new Kindle 2, is bound to get dissected. I don’t know why it took so long but here’s Kindle 2 dissected from guys at ifixit.com.
- According to the article, the Kindle 2 has a 532MHz 90nm ARM11-based Freescale MCIMX31L CPU, compared with the 412MHz ARM1176JZ-S of the iPhone 3G.
- When they completely disconnected the screen from the battery, the content on the screen remained crystal clear even though there was no power to it.
- Pound for pound, it’s more expensive than the MacBook Pro 17-inch Unibody, since the Kindle 2 weighs only 10.2 ounces.
- Disassembling the Kindle 2 was supposedly simple as they removed “only” 26 screws and disconnected four connectors.
