iPad Wi-Fi Teardown
Teardowns provide a look inside a device and should not be used as disassembly instructions.
Check out the iPad Wi-Fi Repair Manual for a full set of repair guides!
We got a sneak peak inside the iPad yesterday, when we were able to un-redact the FCC's test photos. Be warned, however: what you see there is with a pre-production unit, while the photos here are from a unit purchased at retail.

Our iPad repair manual already has some repair guides in progress for the iPad. We hope you didn't already break your screen, but if so, that's the best place to go.
Also check out the YouTube video slideshow of the teardown!
Update 4/5: We've worked with ChipWorks to dissect the silicon inside the iPad. More photos forthcoming.

The iPad measures in at 242.8 x 189.7 x 13.4 mm and weighs in at 1.5 lbs.
The significantly improved 9.7 inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen with Multi-touch is perfect for all your movie watching, e-book reading needs.
The iPad's model number is A1219, which doesn't mean much. But the 3G iPad is A1337, which is rather geeky, even for Apple.
Yes, we did turn it on—how could we not? But then we turned it right back off and started figuring out how to pry this beautiful machine apart.
