BlackBerry PlayBook Teardown: Peeling back the tape on the blue antenna wire
After removing all the motherboard's screws and disconnecting all the wires and cables, I peeled a second piece of black tape away from the right half of the battery back. As with the piece of black tape on the left half, it held one of the BlackBerry Playbook's four antenna wires in place.
As with the first antenna wire, I later discovered that I didn't need to peel away this piece of tape to remove the motherboard.
