Next to the awesome Will It Blend? series by Blendtec, we're big fans of what iFixIt does to hardware. Whereas Blendtec tosses electronics into an industrial blender and records the carnage, iFixIt tears into expensive gadgets, giving the average user who doesn't have the stomach for tech surgery more than just a peek inside. The newest patient to land on iFixIt's operating table is Motorola's Droid RAZR.
The RAZR brand returns, coming back as the thinnest addition to the Droid line to date. It has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass, 8MP rear-facing camera with 1080p recording, a 4G LTE radio, and other goodies.
Here's where things get fun. iFixIt ever so briefly considered opening up the RAZR with a dozuki, otherwise known as a traditional Japanse saw, but quickly realized that's a good way to lose fingers and opted to use a spudger instead (we're sure they didn't actually consider a dozuki, but the picture is cool nonetheless).
