iFixit Does An Amazon Kindle Fire Teardown

Ah the joys of getting your hands on the newest gadgets. Don't we all just love opening new boxes to reveal the hidden treasures inside. Then just imagine how those geeks over at iFixit feel every time they get a new toy. Not only do they get the fun of opening the box but they get to immediately tear open the device itself!

Earlier this week the iFixit geeks got their hands on, what is is likely to be the hottes item this holiday season, the new Amazon Kindle Fire. As with tradition the very first thing they did was a complete teardown, with step by step instructions and a complete list of specs of course.

On the inside they found:
  • 7" LG Multi-Touch Display with IPS Technology
    1024 x 600 pixel resolution at 169 ppi, 16 million colors
  • Dual-Core Texas Instruments SoC Processor
