Apple iPad 2 Teardown
With the release of the 2nd generation iPad, Apple hopes to remain king of the tablet/slate PC market. The iPad 2 is thinner, lighter, and faster than the original Apple iPad. It also has front- and rear-facing cameras. Inside the iPad 2 are chips from Samsung, Texas Instruments, Broadcom, and more. Follow along as I crack open the Apple iPad 2 in this TR Dojo Teardown gallery.
