    You need to be experienced with electronics and have the right tools to do the job but I doubt that will work. Different hardware and different OS.

    With a LOT of work and expertise, maybe the guts of two are three devices (trial and error) you could probably get it to work. Support for the PlayBook screen resolution and digitizer "was" originally in BB10 (maybe is wasn't removed).

    But no it isn't just going to all plug-in and play type installation, nor would you likely get PlayBook case to close. And you wold have an issue with Landscape mode that a Tablet needs vs the Portrait mode of the Z10 and Z30.

    Things like the power management chip being tuned to a specific battery characteristics like current under load or charging can be a show stopper. Hooking the PlayBook's battery to the Z10 chip might kill it. Its a matter of the sensing resistor value being right. The Z30 resistor might be closer. But this is a fun mind game to think through.
