Amazon Kindle Fire HD 2013 Torn Down By iFixit

The guys over at iFixit got their hands on the new $140 Amazon Kindle Fire HD 2013 and did what came naturally to those bad boys. Upon tearing down the new Kindle tablet, iFixit found that thanks to the minor design changes, the device can be repaired more easily, i.e. it gets a higher score in their "repairability" index. Many of the internal components seem to have remained untouched, save for an upgraded dual-core SoC. The LG display panel is not glued to top-layer glass, which contributed to the 8/10 scored by Amazon's new Kindle Fire. This means there's a higher chance that you can crack one of these babies open and fix some minor issues (highly not recommended).
