Nikkei Electronics Teardown Squad tackles iPad2 and finds lots of tape

I just stumbled onto a 4-part article by the Nikkei Electronics Teardown Squad as they tackled the disassembly of the Apple iPad 2. The article points out the difficulties of prying apart a new product when you don’t know how it was assembled. In this case, the main obstacle was liberal use of double-sided tape, resulting in lots of references to products offered by Chinese system vendors.
