    Thought I would share my new media dock for both the playbook & Z10. With just enough play in the connectors I can easily connect both devices. The parts are cheap, the charging pod was about $8 & micro hdmi was $20 & for power I just use the playbook charger. Now I just need to paint the box black.Playbook & Z10 Media Dock-img_00000127.jpgPlaybook & Z10 Media Dock-img_00000193.jpgPlaybook & Z10 Media Dock-img_00000198.jpgPlaybook & Z10 Media Dock-img_00000199.jpg

    First off do this at your own risk... Just need a few tools, Screw drivers for disassembling the charging pod, drill and drill bits for drilling holes to suit connectors, ruler for measuring hole locations, and a scraper or chisel for scraping the back side because the plastic is too thick for the connectors to seat properly. I used some masking tape to draw the holes on. You will also need some screws to suit the assembly holes in the pod and what ever block or box you are using. Best of luck. Let me know if you need any other tips.

    this is a great mod!
    can you charge the playbook via the pin connector and usb data transfer at the same time?
    how did you get the USB connector to stick out? did you epoxy the connector into the pod base?

    playbook docking station/sync has been my biggest gripe with the playbook.
