iPad 2 Teardown Highlights

iFixit iPad 2 Teardown is already available...they are getting very efficient at dismantling Apple iDevices.

Here is a couple minute video (much more interesting than ours) from iFixit with the highlights of their iPad 2 teardown...a few key findings: The iPad 2 glass display was found to be much thinner, from 0.85 millimeters to 0.62 millimeters. The LCD display thickness is around 25% of the total iPad 2 thickness still at 2.4 millimeters.
