Illustration for article titled Watch the Kindle Fire's Guts Dissected

The mad dismantlers at iFixit have their prying hands on the Kindle Fire, which means it's time to rip that thing apart. If the silicon sadist inside you enjoys such things, read on—lots of pretty tablet innards await.

There aren't any surprises so far, but the team does not the Fire has a "monstrous" battery, measuring 4.6" tall x 4.3" wide. That takes up an enormous amount of room in the 7-inch Kindle's belly, but then again, it's shown great battery life thus far. What other surprises will be revealed? Maybe some others! We'll update accordingly. [iFixit]
