iFixit Pull apart the Palm Pre

As usual, the guys over at iFixit have been busy this weekend with the launch of the Palm Pre. They spent the night waiting inline outside a sprint store ready to grab one of the first Palm Pre’s. In traditional style, iFixit took it back home and started to carefully tear it apart.

Taking the Palm Pre apart consisted of unfastening 6 screws found when they took the battery cover off and then by carefully working around the phone releasing all the tabs holding it together. 2 antennas were found inside with one being the GPS antenna and the other being the DIV (diversity antenna). After the back was removed it was time to get the keyboard out and then the rest of it which seemed to come apart quite easily.

Check out the tear down of the Pre over at iFixit.
