Kindle Fire HD: The Pretty Little Tablet Spills Its Gorgeous Guts

The DIY maniacs at iFixit got their hands on the new Kindle Fire HD, cracked it open and found out some neat new details about the beautiful new 7-inch tablet’s guts.

Until now, we knew Amazon’s spec battery life for the awesome the Kindle Fire HD, but we didn’t actually know how big the battery was. Turns out the Kindle Fire HD has 4400mAh, 16.43Wh Li-ion battery compared to a 4326mAh, 16Wh battery on the Nexus 7. They’re supposed to last 11 hours and 9.5 hours respectively. How does that tiny difference in battery size account for the difference in battery life? Good chance it has to do with the processors at work in each tablet.

Aside from the battery detail, the iFixit teardown features mhttp://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Kindle-Fire-HD-Teardown/10457/1ore insanely nerdy minutiae about what’s inside Amazon’s new pride and joy. One piece of good news, though: the tablet looks like it will be relatively easy to repair. [iFixit]
