Having your circuits exposed, RAM revealed and baseband boggled at is a rite of passage for any smartphone worth its salt, and so it was clear the iPhone 4S would have to suffer the teardown treatment. Apple's new dualcore smartphone has been vigorously hazed by the screwdriver-toting engineers at iFixit, revealing a larger battery among other things.

You have to be a fan of the gang over at iFixit if you are gadget hound. They take the shiny new toys that we all want and open them up to show us the shiny insides. At the same time the teardown also gives us an indication of how reparable the gear is should we ever need to fix something on our own. It's also cool to see what hardware is used inside.

The geeks over at iFixit are always doing to their gadgets what we don’t generally want to do to ours -tearing the gear apart. It's always cool to see what is inside a device like the iPhone 4 to get an idea of what the smartphone costs to build and how it will perform compared to other smartphones with similar hardware inside.

The gang over at iFixit is always taking one gadget or another apart and looking at what is inside the device that makes it tick. The auspices for tearing the cool gadgets apart are that they are looking at how easy the things are to repair. That's all fine and good, we just want to see what the devices look like on the inside. I really wish I could buy a DSLR with a clear case like that Sony DSLR that surfaced a while back so I could look at the innards all the time.

Motorola XOOM world modem spotted in teardown

It's something of a teardown day, with first the new MacBook Pro getting stripped to basics and now the Motorola XOOM suffering the same. iFixit whipped open the casing - a straightforward process, given Motorola obviously doesn't want to make things too difficult for its technicians adding in 4G modem support - and discovered that the XOOM actually uses the same hybrid CDMA/GSM modem as found in the Verizon iPhone 4.
