Re: BUY A NEW PLAYBook

Come on. You've had a laugh about London and its immitations, now does anyone know if Playbook parts can be obtained, or was it all BS?    I know you're online.

Re: BUY A NEW PLAYBook

What parts are you looking for? Some have had broken screens replaced? I don't know where they got them. Check the Internet for available parts for a PlayBook. Also do a search on Www.crackberry.com. You might find some help there.

Re: BUY A NEW PLAYBook

I called RIM to see about getting my screen fixed and was told $150. For that price I can buy a new one in Canada,assuming that I can find one. Everywhere is sold out after Christmas and Boxing. Day.

I am not looking for parts, the other guy was. I have looked unsuccessfully in the past when the furore about USB sockets arose.  I was just very interested for when I do need them, as I have never seen any ads for parts.  I think it's important to back up advice such as this with real data.

+86 is china. Makes you wonder how they get hold of the parts!  Genuine? They have been around 10 years if you believe the copyright statement.   I buy valves (tubes) for my hifi from China but not sure about something as expensive as this. $82 plus all the dismantling which is not easy.

You could try on EBay..I have seen new ones for sale on there..however, they are certainly not available for the Boxing Day sale prices ($118)
