B&N NOOK HD+ gets ripped apart for the FCC’s amusement

There are at least two great sources on the internet for photos of electronic devices that have been dissected. Repair shop iFixit, and the FCC. The former takes apart new gadgets to see what it would take to put them back together again. The latter is a regulatory agency looking at the wireless components.

Fortunately while the FCC documents aren’t always as informative (to the layperson) as a detailed tear-down guide, the agency does make a habit of posting pictures of gadgets online.

This week’s model? The Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+.

NOOK HD dissected

The NOOK HD+ features a 9 inch, 1920 x 1280 pixel display, a 1.5 GHz TI OMAP 4470 dual core processor, 8GB to 16GB of storage, and a microSD card slot.

The WiFi tablet runs Google Android which has been customized with B&N’s user interface, reading apps, and app and content stores.

We already knew all of those details. But if you’ve been itching to see what the battery, system board, and other internal components look like, the FCC’s got photos.

B&N is taking pre-orders for the NOOK HD+ for $269 and up.

Update: This post has been updated to reflect the fact that this is an FCC listing for the 9 inch NOOK HD+, not the 7 inch NOOK HD, as had been previously reported. Thanks Tom!

    The tablet in question is the 9″ Nook HD+, not the 7″ HD. Note the grommet.
