No wonder this tablet was not a big success for Best Buy. Cutting the battery cables has to be an engineering nightmare. It makes no sense to solder something like a battery to the motherboard knowing fully well it has to be replaced in the near future. The engineer that designed this hopefully is in the unemployment line.
