Apple iPad 3G Dissected

We’ve seen the iPad disassembled recently, and now the folks over at iFixit are doing their usual thing with the iPad 3G. While the exterior of the iPad 3G looks more or less the same with the Wi-Fi iPad, the inclusion of the black RF window, for better antenna reception, makes the opening procedure slightly different, as you wouldn’t want to crack it. Thanks to the inclusion of GPS and 3G, the iPad 3G actually sports five antennas: two for the cell reception, one for the GPS signal and two more to handle Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity. Have you received your iPad 3G yet, or are you still deciding whether to get one? In the meantime, our iPad review should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.
