Kindle Fire HD Gets iFixit Teardown, Scores High on Ease of Repairability

No new piece of tech goes mainstream until the guys over at iFixit have torn it open and showed us all of what’s inside. The new Kindle Fire HD is the most recent device to fall to the repair tools and got pulled open promptly. Amazon took a cue from Google in the ease of repairability, the Fire HD matched the Nexus 7 on repairability with a 7 out of 10.

Amazon found a way to keep their tablet easily fixable while making the overall device slimmer than the Nexus 7. The only problem is that the LCD and front glass panel are fused together and would be a little expensive to get that piece fixed. Other than that the Fire HD passed iFixit’s inspection.

    meh wasn’t really interested before, but much less now that they’re going the locked-bootloader route. maybe amazon and moto can be buddies.
