 +This is a placeholder page for Blackberry Playbook h4x.  Here's what we know so far:
 +
 +  * skroo has a 16GB Blackberry Playbook.  The warranty has been both violated and voided.
 +  * The device is largely-useless because it runs Blackberry Playbook OS.  Shame, because the hardware (while nothing to necessarily write home about) is relatively decent.
 +  * Yes, it can run Android apps under the Playbook OS.  That's not the point.  The idea is to eventually get it to run Android natively.
 +  * There's something really tiny and really interesting-looking on the mainboard near one of the battery connectors.
 +
 +Right now it's in pieces (but still working) and a couple of interesting things have been documented.  Awaiting arrival of suitable components for additional investigation.
 +
 +=====  Notes   =====
 +
 +2mm is an interesting width.
 +
 +Also, I got bored with it, put it back together, and took it home.  Might screw around with it at some point, but $99 Android tablets let me be lazy.
