For quit some time I consider buying new battery for my Playbook. The only problem is that that is built in to the rest of the boards. Is it possible to change the battery and if so how?
It's not really possible, but why would you want to do that? No PlayBook should have a battery that has a significantly reduced life, unless it's defective. Defective ones would still all be under warranty.
maciek226, it won't simply "die", unless it's actually defective.
Rather, it will gradually lose capacity, bit by bit, until the daily life is low enough that you are too frustrated by it.
By that time, which should be well over two years away, maybe 3-4, if the PlayBook's been successful, you should be able to find places that will sell you replacement batteries (there are two) or replace the batteries for you.
RIM has a flat rate for replacing the battery as well. I read it in some documentation that came when I did an express exchange on my son's playbook. I don't have the documents handy anymore, but I think it way $99.
