iFixit Goes Speaker Hunting In HTC Surround Teardown

Spoiler: The inside of a Windows Phone 7 device looks like the inside of an Android or iOS device — just so you know. Didn’t want you proceeding expecting to see something like little Redmond gremlins hobbling around the circuit boards and modems. Yeah, if you’ve seen one teardown, you’ve seen them all. So unless you get a tech chubby from circuit board pr0n, proceed with your daily madness because even the Surround’s big feature is a tiny speaker, iFixit determined that the “[sliding] mechanism provides added complexity for the sole purpose of arguable audio performance gains.”
