Last month Adonit announced the Jot Touch, the world’s first pressure-sensitive stylus for Apple’s iPad. The device uses Adonit’s unique precision disc tip and a Bluetooth connection to transmit pressure information to Jot Ready iPad apps.
Today the Jot Touch hit the FCC and got torn down in the process, above. You can see how Adonit fit a CSR Bluetooth processor and a rechargeable battery into the frame of the Jot Touch which is about the size of a Sharpie.
LG’s latest Windows Phone, the LS831, made a recent appearance on the FCC, getting pictured and torn down in the process. The device, pictured above, features a 5MP camera and support for CDMA/EVDO bands 850 and 1900, a good sign that this device will be making its way to Sprint.
Internal photos of the LS831 show Hynix NAND Flash Memory, Samsung SDRAM, a Broadcom transceiver and a Qualcomm power management chip. It’s likely that the device also relies on a Qualcomm processor.
No word yet on pricing or a release date for the LS831.
Last month Logitech unveiled its latest innovation in the input market: the Logitech Cube. About the size of a pack of gum (one of those larger 20-stick packs, natch), the Cube combines a mouse, presenter and touch surface all in one.
The Cube first appeared on the FCC back in October, and today internal photos of the device were released. It’s quite remarkable to see how Logitech fit an Atmel ATmega324PA 8-bit AVR RICS microcontroller, optical sensor, touch controller, and 240mAh battery into a package that’s less than half the size of a traditional mouse.
The Cube will cost $70, and was originally scheduled to be released in late January. No firm release date for the device has been announced.

Motorola’s Xyboard 8.2 tablet, aka the XOOM 2 Media Edition 8.2 got the FCC teardown treatment today, a follow up to the device’s original appearance on the FCC back in October. FCC internal photos show the Xyboard’s main board, camera modules, display and antennas, but unfortunately don’t give us a good look at the device’s chips.
The Xyboard 8.2 was launched in the UK as the XOOM 2 Media Edition 8.2. The device got the “Xyboard” branding when it was released by Verizon.

Nokia’s Lumia 710 Windows Phone first appeared on the FCC back in October 2011, and today internal photos of the device were released. FCC photos give us a look at the device’s main board, including the Lumia 710’s Hynix and Elpida memory. Part numbers on the device’s memory modules are not visible, but we’d guess that the Hynix chip provides the Lumia’s 8GB of internal storage, while the Elpida chip is SDRAM. Also visible is what appears to be a Qualcomm Power Management chip. Unfortunately, FCC internal photos don’t show the device’s Qualcomm MSM8255 processor.

RIM unveiled the Porsche-designed BlackBerry Porsche P’9981 back in October, revealing a stainless steel, leather and glass device that departs nicely from the traditional black plastic BlackBerry design. Unfortunately, the P’9981 is a luxury device with a $2,000 plus price tag that will only be available on a limited basis.
Thanks to the FCC, however, we get a closer look at the P’9981, including a few shots of the device’s innards. FCC internal photos of the P’9981 show the front and back of the device’s main board, although we don’t get a good look at the device’s chips since they’re covered with shielding. FCC external photos show what appears to be a prototype of the P’9981, with the “Porsche Design” logo replaced with the word “Proceeding.”
