Re: Removing playbook cover

Do you mean the back panel so you can access the battery like on a bb phone?

 

you can't its one complete unit.  I'm sure if you do open it you'll void any warrenty you have as it isn't meant to open.

Not true. You can lever off the back with plastic pry tools. Google "ifixit.com playbook teardown"

Unlike Ipads, no heatgun is needed. only two tools are needed, the plastic pry tools and a #00 Phillips turnscrew.

 

True. Warranty will be void.  True replacing battery is a major teardown task.
