What will you do if you are among those fortunate consumers to buy the new iPad? Won't you use it highly careful and cautious without even making a scratch on it? But if you were the co-founder and CEO of iFixit, Luke Soules, a technology repair and parts firm based in California, then you would rip it carefully into parts and find out what it is made of.
Soules flew from Austin, Texas to Melbourne, Australia in order to be among the first ones to get the tablet and also the first one to take it apart. He has removed the display using suction cups and found the parts that are used in it. He has seen it very similar to the iPad 2 but with a couple of exceptions.
Here is a video on the dissection of the new iPad. It shows all the parts that are used and also exposes the brands that were combined in the making.
Its is pretty much the same as expected with very few changes from the previous generation tablet as far as the internals are concerned. The new iPad has a 3.1 million pixel Retina Display which the company assures to have more pixels than the other devices. The iPad that was dissected by iFixit had a Samsung made display and an Apple A5X dual core processor to deliver faster graphics. As per iFixit, the other parts in the tablet are from Broadoom, Toshiba and Qualcomm.
