Samsung Galaxy Tab Repairability: 6 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

All of the components are accessible without soldering.

The battery is user-replaceable.

Tri-wing screws were used to deter would-be repairers, but can be easily thwarted with one of iFixit's bit driver kits.

A heat gun is required to access the LCD.

Getting the Galaxy Tab open is quite a chore; plastic opening tools alone are not enough to do the trick.

Much like its competitor, the iPad 3G, the Samsung Galaxy Tab didn't stand a chance against iFixit's crafty handywork.

That's it! Thanks again to Richard Lai @ Engadget for getting us the hardware.
