I took my Eken apart for the X-th time and thought I make some quick images for you to see what it looks inside. Maybe the one or the other is curious, or needs to know something. If you need higher resolution of certain parts, just ask.I also included images of the locking hooks which, besides the 2 screws hold the thing together. Once you know what it looks like you are more likely to be able to open it without breaking them.Here we go (click for full size):Nothing fancy, just the plastic case with the touchscreen panel in the metal box and the battery on the back.The protective screen is glued on the touchscreen panel, or vice versa, your choice, however there?s a bit of a distance between them, which might cause the broken fingers trying to maneuver the eken without a stylus.The nasty locking hooks, you see thir positions in the prior image. After removing the 2 screws at the connector side, you should be able to gently pry it open at the long side and then with a flat something you can push the counterparts of the hooks on the top of the case (with the display) back into the device and the hook at the back of the case should release - if your not gentle you end up with the right result

The mainboard in all its glory. As you see its a rather fresh batch, V7 from 05.07.2010 and on the back it seems we got a samsung memory chip - and everything?s professionally insulated with masking tape... well nothing surprising if you took a few chinagadgets apart
At the memory chip you see that they arent too keen with soldering either.Finally the processorcard. You might notice the invisible cpu cooling =) The WIFI heat appearing to be bogus, you know now where the heat comes from..All in all its a cheap plastic case with random underpowered electrical components thrown in without any love or slug tuning running an outdated OS. But I was aware of that when ordering one, its cheap and its fun to toy around with.

[quote name='Pook;44265]Appears to be quite a good prototype' date=' I wonder what the production model will look like?[/QUOTE'] Imagine the same device with ducttape instead of masking tape.Oh and the red glue at the connector of the broad ribbon cable for the screen is vital, its what keeps it closed and the clip in place, theres nothing else
(And no, fiddling around neither caused, nor solved my touchscreen issues)However, all sarcasm aside, for its buck it?s a great toy.
