Inside look at BlackBerry PlayBook

While there’s a debate going on about the future of BlackBerry as whole and their only tablet Playbook in particular, I decided to tear open my playbook to see what’s inside. Well, a few things that were interesting are listed below:

  • More than 75% of the device was stuffed with a huge battery
  • Only thing that is noticeably visible other than the battery is the motherboard.
  • Both of these items are lying above an LCD.
  • There are only a few wires and connectors and rest is all clean hardware with minimum connectivity

Here are a few photos of the Playbook from inside.

Fortunately, I did end up put it all together again in one piece without any issues.
