  • Here's what you'll find in the box:

    • A manual (even smaller than the iPod).

    • The usual, much-maligned headphones.

  • The growing iPod Nano family.

  • Although the new Nano is shorter and wider than its older siblings, it has approximately the same area (36 square centimeters).

  • Apple appears to be going in circles. Anodized aluminum, shiny, anodized, shiny...

  • But of course, it's what's inside that counts.

  • And here's our first look inside this newest Nano.

  • The case has eight locking tabs:

    • Three on the left, evenly spaced.

    • Three on top.

    • Two on the right, near the bottom, to make room for the display circuitry at the upper right.

  • We've removed six Phillips screws fixing the logic board to the casing.

  • We can now lift the logic board up, but it's still tethered by the visible click wheel cable and the hidden display cable.

Kommentar hinzufügen

  • We've disconnected the click wheel cable and flipped the board over to disconnect the display cable.

  • Now we use a spudger to pry up the display, which is held along the case's edge by an adhesive strip.

  • The first generation Nano's display was attached in exactly the same way. If you're not careful when prying it up, you may crack it.

  • We're noticing a strong trend as we take apart this iPod: adhesive.

  • The click wheel is held in place by nothing but a very strong adhesive, which is going to make replacing it difficult. You'll have to get it to stay in place as well as Apple has (i.e. very well).

  • Here the battery is out of its metal housing, which is attached to the logic board by, that's right, adhesive.

  • The battery is attached to the logic board by three through-hole solder points, as in the second generation Nano (sorry, no easy replacements).
