    As CB have relased pictures of the new Z10 mutimedia dock arriving soon, a thought came into my mind.

    Those connectors have about the same spacing as our Playbook ones. If those end stops were to be carefully removed, in theory you could put the Playbook in there and, at long last, have the docking station the PB should of had in the first place.

    Qustion is, who has money to spare and is brave enough to give it a go...

    Sounds like a fun Science Fair project! Lol. Once they become available I'll try hacking one up to see what happens.

    That was first thought when I saw the dock.....I was lining up the ports on my Z10 and PlayBook, I think this will work perfectly. Just a little cutting....

    Why hasn't some innovative company already created one for the Playbook? Sounds like a no-brainer to me. I'm just not that creative.....but I do have credit cards.

    You have to ask, why do the connectors on the phone and PB have the same spacing, orientation and order, if not to share a common piece of hardware...

    If they were not going to share a common piece of hardware, then surely the connectors would of been placed in optimal positions for the device

    Is BB designing a common MM dock?
    Why didn't they do this in the first place for the PB, it is so obvious, it is bizarre why they have not done it so far

    questions, questions

    tbh I'd love a proper dock for the playbook, but without working USB I don't see the point at the moment.

    If the usb was working I'd knock up a joypad wraparound yolk in the workshop tomorrow.

    Wouldn't it be easier to hack the playbook charging stand instead?
    Do they make a L shape micro HDMI connector?

    They made one for the PlayBook. I think it got misplaced behind the "Coming Soon" bin...
