iFixit Guts Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch Tablet

When it comes to seeing what new gadgets look like on the inside most people turning the Internet rather than ripping open their own devices. It's much more fun to see other people tear up gadgets that it is to turn up something you purchased with your own hard-earned money. iFixit has published a tear down of the new Kindle Fire HDX seven-inch tablet.

Much like all the other tear downs iFixit is famous for, this one is mostly just to show what's inside the tablet, but a repairability score is given. I continue to be impressed by how few components are actually inside modern gadgets.

In the end, the Kindle Fire HDX gets a score of 3/10 with 10 being the easiest to repair. One major reason the tablet scored so low is because the LCD is glued to the glass meaning you have to replace the entire screen if you crack the glass. The battery is also glued inside the tablet reducing its repairability score.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
