Come and see the new tablet guts


iFixit got a 4G new iPad and performed their surgery magic to it. Exciting stuff inside.

No need for long text this time. The news is simple: iFixit got and new iPad and dismembered it for all to see.

Our CXO flew to the Telstra store in Melbourne, Australia and was first in line to get the iPad 3 for our deconstructive pleasure.
A big thanks to Macfixit Australia for letting us use their facility for the teardown!
