BlackBerry PlayBook Teardown: Removing the antenna PCB screws
Three of the BlackBerry PlayBook's antenna wires are attached to small PCBs located at the device's corners. As the antenna wires appeared to be attached to the battery assembly with adhesive, I decided to remove them along with the assembly. Each of the small antenna PCBs is held in place with a Phillips screw.
