While taking apart the software of our mobile devices is nothing new on our forums, taking apart their hardware is. Join us for another XDA TV session, in which XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler unboxes the Nook Tablet the XDA way.
Undressing the tablet all the way to its bare internals, Adam gives us an inside glimpse at how the device really works.

This video and the rest of our XDA TV content can be found on our YouTube channel.

Editor’s note: This week's feature has been written by forum member RowHanSolo and takes a look at the exciting prospect of launching satellites fitted with little more than an Android phone as an onboard computer.
