by: J. Angelo RacomaSeptember 8, 2012
Folks, we usually get teardown features from the likes of IHS iSuppli and iFixIt, and are primarily meant to confirm the components and even the prices of devices. In time for the UK and U.S. release of the Sony Xperia Tablet S, we get a product teardown of the ICS tablet. But what's interesting is that Sony itself did the teardown of its own tablet computer for fans and analysts alike.

Galaxy S3’s inner beauty exposed thanks to intrepid X-Ray technician

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 23, 2012

Do you love teardowns? I do too, but the thought of losing a beautiful device in the process is always making me a bit sad. Call me sentimental, but I wished there was a more humane, non-invasive way to see what makes my Samsung Galaxy S3 tick… Well, there is.

We have already covered the Nexus 7 extensively since the first Google I/O keynote, so you should be pretty familiar with its specs and features, release dates, international launch announcements, rooting, custom ROMs and default OS version.
