E-reader users have no reason to look too deeply into how their gadget works, so long as they can read their books in peace and without lag- or visibility-induced annoyance, but there are also those who like to see what their devices are made of.
As it happens, PowerbookMedic has posted a walkthrough on YouTube, wherein the Kindle Paperwhite E-reader from Amazon is systematically disassembled.
For those who want their memory refreshed, the gadget has a better screen than its predecessor, as well as a “light guide” layer between the external glass and the touchscreen beneath, which reflects light away from the reader's eyes and towards the screen below, increasing the contrast (hence the name). There is a schematic here.
Fortunately, the disassembly video doesn't go as far as to tear the screen's layers asunder.
That said, there's a second video too, where the e-reader is put back together. Check it out below.
