    I cant see the video while I am at work :( but I wonder if they were able to confirm that the wireless chip supports N like the N1.

    Great video!

    Notice at 1:50 how large the camera assy is. It stands up well above the circuit board, and that's the reason "lens cover" has to stick out beyond the edge of the back.

    I watched the video and read the comments but it didnt answer the question i've been wondering about. Did this reveal a wireless chip that is N compatible?

    Anyone notice the moisture sticker on the inside of the Micro-USB port? That would get you every time if you had a moisture issue.

    I put up this comment at end of article:
    "Any chance of putting up some high resolution photos?

    I'm very curious which wireless chip is in there. Did you identify wireless chip? Is it the Broadcom BCM4329EKUBG?"

    I hope they answer. I would love to get N on this phone eventually.

    Would that be the pink sticker at 1:36?

    I had taken my Inc apart this morning with the idea that maybe I'd be the first to post up some pics of it taken apart, but boy was I wrong. :(

    Either way, you can see the numbers on most of the chips except a couple that are hidden behind some metal shielding, one of those will probably be the wireless, in which case you can't see the numbers. :( The flash, RAM and CPU are easily seen as well as some of the radio chips.
