    How did you manage to get one?


    Yes it's a BlackBerry. If you have something bad to say... speak to Easton!

    Wow that looks really nice. Where did you get them from? Try running an autoloader please

    By running an autoloader on it, you're basically risking bricking it and closing all other options (ie. if it's a dev device, you'd convert it back to a production device, leaving you unable to do anything 'special') -- this is pretty terrible advice if we want to figure out what exactly it is in terms of hardware & try to get something running on it.

    Yeah definitely don't run an autoloader on it. You have to be careful about what you load on devices because the most recent firmwares have blacklists that prevent earlier versions being run on it. Also, the latest version may blacklist or just not run on this device.

    Please please sell one to Gran PC or someone Who will take care of it and know what to do with it. Then hopefully document everything for the community.

    Would be great if one of our PlayBook Tech Gurus got hold of one of these units to try and bring to life. Who are you clever person, where are you? Who would you like to have the chance to work on this this project? Maybe a team needs to work together!? ....with the OPs permission of course!

    OP would you be able to take some photos with better lighting, preferably day light?

    It's just that you're photographing something that's predominantly black in semi-darkness, hard to make out any details.

    Hi I'm here, if the 'cfp info' output looks any good I'll be definitely buying one of them

    The units are almost certainly prototypes from the black forest project. Prototype can mean anything from a mockup to a production sample.

    Any update on this thread?

    Could we get one if these babies to someone at Crackberry and have it examined. Very interested if these work or are just mockups!

    What happens if you try to charge and power them up?

    Exactly - would be fun to find out if they're working, and (if they are) what's loaded on them

    Awesome! Thanks for contributing to uncovering this hidden side of the PlayBook. Am well excited for what night cone of it. This is awesome.

    Am particularly interested in what kind of hardware is in these 10inches and what if any OS version is on them.

    This might give us all an insight into what blackberry 's plans were for the PlayBook had it only sold better.

    OS loaded is 2.1.0.1753 (dev). I will answer more questions as I find out -- it will probably arrive on Monday.

    Very interesting thread, good luck with your findings. I have to say though, IMO a 10 inch Playbook looks ghastly. Must prefer the current size.
