As per usual, the mad repair scientists at iFixit have gotten their hands on the latest hardware and turned it inside out — this time, the victim is Google's new Nexus 7 tablet. The specs of this Asus-made device have been well publicized, so there aren't any huge surprises here — iFixit confirms the 4,326 mAh battery and Tegra 3 chipset, while also noting that the 1280 x 800 display is manufactured by Hydis. Somewhat surprisingly, there's a pair of speaker drivers packed inside the Nexus 7, despite the external appearance (and note on Google's official specs page) that the tablet uses a single speaker. Unfortunately, iFixit wasn't able to confirm whether the Corning-made glass covering the front of the Nexus 7 is Gorilla Glass, Gorilla Glass 2, or something else entirely. As for repairability, the Nexus 7 got a seven out of ten; almost as good as the Kindle Fire, and significantly more repairable than the new iPad. To see all the gory details, check out iFixit's full teardown right here.
