While new tablets and smartphones are almost always great, there are users out there who might be more concerned over other aspects of the device and not just on its features and hardware specs. These other aspects include issues such as how easy would it be to repair, are the parts all customized and will need specially made equipment to fix and etc. Well the good news is that if you’ve always wondered how the innards of Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HD look like, the folks at iFixit have posted their teardown of Amazon’s latest tablet.
Thanks to their teardown, they have confirmed that the Kindle Fire HD is powered by the TI OMAP 4460 processor and comes with 1GB of Elpida RAM. They have also discovered that the Kindle Fire HD measures 0.1mm thinner than its competitor, the Google Nexus 7 and is apparently a lot easier to open, hence a lot more repairable as well. If you’re interested in checking out the rest of the components within the Kindle Fire HD and see how they are laid out, head on over to iFixit’s website in the source link below.
