Is it possible to remove the LCD and replace it? I was thinking it might be worth replacing it somewhere down the line with a better LCD or an AMOLED screen if they become cheaply avaiable and in the right size.
In general I'd say no, as most LCD's aren't interchangeable (and AMOLED is totally different), _but_ the Pixel QI replacement 10.1 inch transreflective screen for some netbooks may well work. But it's a lot of money for a maybe...
Hmm, GTab teardown show their screen to be a B101AW06http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=842354
That is used in "Acer Lenovo M13 S10-3" according tohttp://www.alibaba.c...1_inch_LCD.html
According to engadget It will go in the S10-2http://www.engadget....etbook-and-why/
Damn, the s10-2 and the s10-3 have different screens
well there is still hope, the Vega may not use the same screen as the GTab
Ok the s10-2 and the Samsung N130 use the same screen and here are a list of compatable part numbers (AKA things the 3QI screen can replace)
AU Optronics: B101AW01, B101AW01 V.0, B101AW01 V.2, B101AW01 V3
Chi Mei: N101L6-L02, N101N6-L01, N101N6-L02 Rev C.1
LG Philips: LP101WS1, LP101WS1(TL)(B1), LP101WS1(TL)(B3)
Is the Vega screen is any of those? Dare I take mine apart to find out?
EDIT Well I ook mine apart, chickened out at the same place as the OP though, too worried about those grounding foil strips. But I believe I can confirm that the Pixwl QI display _won't_ fint in the Vega, I should have noticed from the pics above, but the cable port for the QI screen is about 1inch up the back of the panel where the vega panel has it's port at the very bottom
Other thought's though. I'm betting that large connector carries mini-PCIE, there are too many connectors for simple USB. however the solderpads below that? They could be USB, so there is the possibility there of using the top covered slot as a USB host maybe?
