Designing Accessories for the Playbook

[ Edited ]



I'm wondering how to go about getting CAD drawings, a dummy unit, or a pre-release unit in order to start designing a line of accessory cases for the Playbook before it is released to the public?


Thank you,


Guru I

Re: Designing Accessories for the Playbook

yes this is possible to get the physical specifications of the device as well as dummy units, since I start seeing accessories for the PlayBook already.


But I don't know how.


My friendly advice :

Remember you are on a community forum, and as such, the chances a RIM employee reads your message are slim. Even more a RIM employee that can answer you.

You must find information somewhere else. Maybe try and contact someone at http://www.shopblackberry.com/ .

The search box on top-right of this page is your true friend, and the public Knowledge Base too:
