iPod shuffle 3G teardown photos available online

iFixit has posted new teardown photos of the third-generation iPod shuffle. The device’s sole chip was found to be a multi-layered stack containing the CPU, RAM, and 4GB of flash memory, while the 3.7 volt lithium-polymer battery lists a capacity of 0.27 watt-hours, or 73 mAh, which iFixit describes as “record-breakingly small” in terms of iPod batteries. Interestingly, the back of the shuffle’s main casing was stamped 09/03/03, suggesting it may have been manufactured as little as ten days ago, and both halves of the device weighed 5 grams, or about 10% more than a single sheet of letter-sized paper.
