iFixit Breaks Down 5th Gen iPod nano

Apple's new fifth generation iPod nano with video capture support has been available for only a couple of days, but that hasn't stopped iFixit from getting ahold of one and stripping it down to its components.

Like previous iPod nano models, the components are all tightly packed inside the case. The new version also uses adhesives instead of screws to hold many of the components together, saving time during the building process, but making repairs more difficult.

The density of the components shows just how much Apple has packed into the nano's tiny case. Along with a video camera, it also holds a pedometer, FM radio receiver, battery, memory chips, and a bigger display than the previous nano model.

The breakdown steps, along with images, are available at the iFixit Web site.
