For a new device, the Moto X is easily labelled with the “less than” tag in regard to hardware. Not the fastest processor, or the most memory. No removable battery, and no 20 megapixel shooter. In the teardown process, though, it became clear that Moto really did rethink mobile phone assembly.
The Kindle Fire HD was announced less than two weeks ago, with a U.S. release just three days back. The team over at iFixIt got their hands on a Kindle Fire HD last Friday and promptly put it on their operating table to have a poke at the tablet's innards. The teardown confirms the specifications released by Amazon, but it also reveals that the Kindle Fire HD is not simply a tweaked version of the original Kindle Fire. Rather, it is a completely different tablet.
