    It was slow at work today and I had the rare opportunity to get a defective Centro thats was exchange do to a crooked screen. I opened it up to see if it would be an easy fix(I knew it wouldn't be, I had opened one the day before but it gave me an excuse to do it anyway) and I snapped a few pics for everybody to see. It was as close to a full breakdown as I could get with out removing heat shields and other warranty voiding components so enjoy....

    So thats whats inside your Centro, all though I wasn't able to straighten the screen all the way, they unit powered on again and passed all hardware and function testing. It will make someone a great replacement one day.

    I can't really tell from your photos, but what is behind the plastic nub that's opposite the stylus? (on the back of the centro, top right corner). I confused this as the stylus at first and attempted to take it out gently, until I noticed my mistake. Just curious what it's there for, what's under the nub (antenna extension?)

    Thats a tool we use called a scribe, its for removing port covers, plugs, and lots of other things. It does make a nice stylus, you have to be careful as it will scratch
