What’s Inside an iPod Nano ?!?

Written By: Gary on September 13, 2005 2 Comments

So on Systm (actually it was SubSystm, a short show focusing on one topic) they just felt the need to crack open the beautiful iPod nano. They filmed it live so you get to see all the guts inside (here’s the specific episode). Besides a little bit of an iPod infomercial, the show included a putty knife, a screwdriver and some really dangerously thin ribbon cables that he was afraid to break remove.

It looks to me like it’ll be easy to replace the battery in the future. It also looks like (assuming the hardware will support it) that it might be easy to replace the memory chips with something larger in the (far) future. Even if it won’t supoort it, they’ll adapt it, everything else is done (you can’t make it much smaller with a screen and a clickwheel), it’s just getting the size of the memory down (a 60GB nano would be nice someday).


Systm is a show that Kevin and some of the other Screen Savers create and distribute on-line (and via podcasts) Kevin said that there wasn’t a TV out on it like on the iPod photo, I thought (maybe just assumed?) that there was one :(

    More iPod Nano Torture

    While the previous iPod Nano examination was more of a vivisection, these folks at ARS Technica took to a new level in a stress test (followed by a dissection). They didn’t expect the patient to live so they had to keep upping the ante of their test. J…
