Tear-down photos of iPod classic, nano

Nano, Classic tear-down

In addition to our unboxing photos, new tear-down photos offer an inside look at Apple's recently-released iPod nanos and classics, highlighting changes over previous generations. While many components are similar, such as most of the Classic's insides, the Nano now uses a fair amount of adhesive to hold together, which can make it hard to reassemble. The Classic has a thinner hard drive, and sports a new metal plate behind the display, presumed to protect against cracking. Photos after the break.

    Looks like they shoved more into a smaller space. Can't wait to get a 160 gig iPod classic.

    potential battery space

    If Steve didn't feel the need to make these things so dang thin, think how big of a battery could sit behind the HD and take up the entire body of the iPod. The battery would easily be twice the capacity as now. That is upwards of 80 hours of music and 10+ hours of video....but I guess thinness is in.

    Opening the latest iPODs

    I would like to hear whether the opening can be accomplished without any damage or maring to the front and back cases. It seems as though Apple has designed the cases to not open easily and thus render them pretty much throw away versus repairable! Thoughts from those experienced with succesfully opening these two new models (Classic and 3G Nano)?
