Nexus 7 tablet dissected on video easier to open than iPad

As with all new tech gear sooner or later it falls into the hands of those that simply lover to dissect a device to get inside and find out just what makes it tick, and now this has happened with Google’s first 7-inch slate, the Google Nexus 7 tablet, and we have that teardown video footage for your viewing consideration below.

The Google Nexus 7 tablet was opened up and reviewed on video by the guys/girls over at iFixit who take an up close and personal look at the Android Jelly Bean packing slate that lasts almost five and a half minutes.

In the footage iFixit’s MJ says that the Google Nexus 7 tablet lives up to its Amazon Kindle Fire killer reputation, but also satisfies on the repair front as well. Apparently those that dissected the Nexus 7 tablet were thrilled that they didn’t need to spend 45-minutes heat gunning off the display of the Nexus 7 like they did with the new iPad, and this is due to the Google Nexus 7 using tiny clips rather than glue, which meant all they required were a little patience and a set of plastic opening tools.

Apparently 1mm is all the difference between glued and almost impossible to repair new iPad, and the Google Nexus 7, which MJ says is the difference between being able to open a device and service it rather than having to throw the device away.

Anyway, enough of me blabbering on, I’ll leave it right there and let you head on down to hit that play button to check out what MJ thinks of the Google Nexus 7 tablet…enjoy.
