Here is a very nice walkthrough of someone pulling apart their ipad (4pages worth of instructions). A very nice read for anyone who wants to know exactly how the internals of their ipad tick.

iPad Teardown - iFixit

Some important notes from this pull apart are:

Quote:
Decoding the part number shows there is 2Gb of memory inside. This translates into ~256MB of memory per die, for 512 MB total.

64Gbit MLC NAND flash.

The 3.75V, 24.8 watt-hour battery provides the juice for an advertised 10 hours of use. In contrast, the iPhone 3GS has a 4.51 watt-hour battery and the MacBook Air has a 40 watt-hour battery.

The USB power supply had to be enhanced specifically for the iPad. It's a 10W unit manufactured by Foxlink Technology, Ltd., part #A1357 W010A051.

Broadcom BCM4329XKUBG 802.11n WiFi + Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and FM

Dual speakers provide mono sound. Two small sealed channels direct sound toward three audio ports carved into the bottom edge of the iPad. The audio-out jack provides stereo sound, of course.

That's a hulk of a battery: it weighs 148g with the casing. Confirming our suspicions from yesterday, the battery integrates two separate 3.75V lithium polymer cells wired in parallel for such ample battery life.

The display assembly weighs in at:153g for the LCD, 193g for the front glass. The glass seems quite thick (~1.18 mm), which is not a huge surprise considering the size of the iPad. Compare that to about 1.02 mm for the iPhone.

Gotta love those guys over at iFixit. I remember when the 3G came out they did the same thing.
