Sony Pretends it's Hard Taking Apart its Own Hardware

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony has put together a complete tech teardown of its new Xperia Tablet S, giving us a look at the magic it squeezed in to its newest lump of Android machinery. You also see the battery. And the screws. It's quite exciting.

The photos also show a comparison between the newer, thinner Xperia Tablet S and last year's chunkier Tablet S, letting us see precisely how much smaller and thinner a whole year's worth of technical development can help make a gadget.

The chap performing the task says the glass of the display makes up a sizeable percentage of the tablet's entire weight, with newer glass formats being one of the ways devices will be able to shed even more weight in the future. [Sony Blog via Engadget]
