Kindle Fire Teardown Reveals Texas Instruments Chip

All new gadgets these days go through what are known as teardowns, where the product is totally disassembled to satisfy the curiosity of gadget-hungry geeks. iFixit has just done this to the Kindle Fire, and has revealed a few interesting things.

The main information to note is the use of a 1GHZ Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 chip, instead of an Intel or ARM one that most other tablets use. This is possibly one of ways in which Amazon saved money and it will be interesting to see how well this chip performs.

The other components were more less as expected (see above), with the thinness of the Fire achieved through the super slim battery that takes up most of the space. After looking at the inside, it doesn’t seem to quite have the same power that the iPad does, but, after all, it is only $199.
