The boys and girls at iFixit are at it again. The group has taken apart both the GSM and CDMA iPad 2 to learn about the 3G radios used in each of them.
iFixit points out that these models are similar in design to what Apple did with the iPhone 4. The CDMA has no SIM slot, and the CDMA version packs on additional antenna.
Like the GSM iPhone 4, the GSM iPad 2 packs Infineon and Broadcom chips while the CDMA version uses a single Qualcomm radio.
