The Apple iPad's box is surprisingly think for such a thin device.
Removing the box top, give us our first look at the Apple iPad.
Within the box, we found the Apple iPad itself, a USB wall power adapter, standard Apple docking cable, a bit of documentation, and a few Apple logo stickers.
With the two ribbon cables removed, we get our first look inside the Apple iPad. Wow! Look at those batteries.

Here you can see the markings on the Apple iPad's (1024x786) LCD display.
The Apple iPad's 3.75V, 24.8 watt-hour battery provides the power for an advertised 10 hours of average use.
In the top, right-hand corner of the metal case you'll find the on/off or sleep/wake button, the screen rotation lock switch, and the volume up/down button.
At the bottom of the metal case, you'll find the speaker assembly, two speakers, data port, connector pins for the Home button, and one of the antennas.
You must remove the thin metal shield from the main logic board to see the Apple iPad's processor and memory chips.
This connector did not have a cable attached to it on our iPad. Perhaps it will in the 3G version released in late April.
