    Is there a playbook dock that will not only charge but it will have a hole for the mini hdmi cable? something like the new z10s charging cradle.

    No there isn't. I use a generic tablet stand and plug in the cables. You can get right angle HDMI adapters at monoprice.com.

    have any examples? i pretty much only use my playbook to watch movies on my tv so a little dock would be nice. it could even lay flat for all i care. the oem blackberry one would be pretty good if only it had a slot for the hdmi.

    I like this one.
    Perch stand for the BlackBerry Playbook

    I have another that is just a thin metal frame that holds in one position upright.

    If you don't mind it laying flat then it would defeat the purpose of the stand. Just plug it in.

    I wonder if they still sell that Perch stand - looks pretty nice if not a bit pricy. I was using my Otterbox stand over the last week and could not get the angle I wanted. But the Perch stand would not accommodate a pb inside an Otterbox shell (and it is too much work to remove it)

    If you don't mind it laying flat why get a dock? Just use an HDMI cable and the rapid charger.

    I was in Dollarama the other week. In the five foot long "Electronics Department" aisle area I noticed a box of tablet stands so spent a dollar for one. It turned out to be made for newer slimmer tablets but I cut and widened the cradle a bit. For a cheap stand it serves the purpose. And it's even available in few colours.

    I made my own out of the charging cradle stand. http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...a-dock-780126/ and am working on another that doesn't have the big box.

    Awful close to the edge!
    Look for a micro HDMI adapter and you will be able to push the PB back a wee bit further from the edge.
    If you live in California, the next tremor could send it into a "Gravity Test".....
    I use something similar, but have the Rapid Charger and a micro HDMI connector on it and it clears the table no problem, and ZERO strain oin the cables.

    I have to save energy for the important things in life. Skied last weekend but pretty tame stuff compared to what friends did yesterday.

    Speaking of Dollarama stands, I got a bunch of these which were originally made for iPads. Extremely handy for kitchen counter operations (recipes, forum reading, etc). If I want to plug in the HDMI cable or rapidcharger cable, I just turn it upside down and the cords are at the top. Not exactly what you wanted but hey, at $2, it ain't half bad!playbook dock with hdmi out?-img_2775.jpgplaybook dock with hdmi out?-img_2774.jpg

    Hi Carl Estes,

    Yeah, a bit risky if right on the edge of the table. It's better if I place a book in the middle of the table and then place the stand on that. I could still have the connections underneath and not worry about it falling over more than a few inches.

    The nice thing about Playbook-sized tablets becoming more popular is there should be more non-brand specific accessories appearing in the dollar stores (today's five and dime).

    btw, the website in my picture is: eduTecher.net-explore. share. contribute A lot of good resources on it.
