@RickMerritt: I am sure this is a typo (slide 9): "STMicroelectronics LIS331DLH six-axis accelerometer." It is a 3-axis part; for Mechanics purist, the additional three degrees of freedom (DOF) represent rotations (angular / tilt sensing DOF's) that are possible to be measured if you use a triad of accelerometers at the origin and two orthogonal ones along each axis (i.e., Z & Y along X, X & Y along Z, etc.). Great dissection nonetheless! MP Divakar

As always, Apple has done a great job on mechanical design. The assembly (dissemble) of the units is so straightforward. What amazed me is the weight reduction. There are so few components; majority of the weight is coming from the battery. The analysis indicates Apple has push the weight to the limit. What else can Apple to do increase the battery life? Reducing power consumption from the CPU and screen?

No mystery or magic. Apple is feeding on endless press obsession. If other firms enjoy that, this competition will narrow.

Yes,I agree with you. It would be good if we get more details like cost, supplier name etc. How is the VGA camera performance, heard some complaints that its resolution is not that great ?

It's basically 3 batteries and a display with a relatively few integrated modules... Cost?

That is a great dissection of the ipad2. Would be really good to see more details regarding the individual subsystems and the suppliers.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
