What the Guts of a Galaxy Tab Look Like

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 12 comments

A little sneak peek under the Galaxy Tab's clothes.

If you've been eyeing up the Samsung Galaxy Tab ever since it was announced, we've got another side of the gadget for you to obsess over this morning. With the American launch just days away, it was high time someone took one of these things apart and this time it's jkkMobile stepping up to the plate.

Most notable finds include the huge, 14.8 W-h lithium-ion battery, which is said to provide up to eight hours of life on a single charge, and relatively large speakers.. All told, the device is neatly put together, as a 7-inch tablet would need to be, but there's still quite a bit of breathing room in there. Check out the pictures and teardown video below!

    From the looks of it, they could have stuffed in a bigger battery.

    I can't wait to play around with one of these... but no 3G? seriously? At least it has built-in cameras.

    There is a 3G model as well, as they say so on the sales website. This is the Wi-Fi model only. I am surprised to see metal on the inside. It makes me curious as to why that didn't make an external metal body and copy the iPad more. I will wait to see one in person and reserve judgment until then. The iPad is cool, but I don't feel particularly comfortable with the locked down design, so if the Galaxy Tab is locked down similarly, I will not be interested in it either.
