First Gutted Glimpse Inside the Kindle 2

After removing 16 screws, some nerdy readers opened up the Kindle 2–making some interesting discoveries about the future of the digital reading device.

Above, you can see the fully-dissected machine, compliments of the bright minds at Ifixit. The experts discovered that the new Kindle has nothing protecting the e-ink screen, which should encourage readers to buy a screen protector for the $359 device.

Interestingly enough, T3News points out something in the guts of the machine: “The presence of an unused SIM card slot could therefore be seen as a good indication that Amazon is planning to bring its eBook reader to other countries. Like this one [the UK]. Where we speak (and read) English. Of course, there’s also the possibility that it was simply a left over from an earlier stage of the design, but we don’t like that kind of pessimistic thinking.” (Via TeleRead)
