So I have been watching some videos today and I have a tab I am willing to sacrifice to the cause...I am trying to add gps and wireless charge...Maybe try and switch the charger port for a micro usb but I will see when I get there. I have been watching videos on doing both mods with iphone 4s today and that stupid kinabis area would be great to hide some boards. Only problem is I got all the screws out and the corners pop loose but the centers stay attached...Has anyone seen this before on a differnt tab? Is it glue/tape or clips? Any ideas?

Ok...So here we go...Got it fully apart..Took some pics. Maybe you guys can see something else that I didn't but it looks as if adding in wireless charging would be rather simple...Other than that I didn't really see anything of interest...what are your thoughts?

My thoughts: Man, there is a lot of wasted space in there. They could've made the bezel 1/4 the size and had a much, MUCH more portable tablet.

Shows they were designing for kids 100%, with no real interest in adult use. (Well, that was already obvious from the awful grid on the back panel and the lip around it even if you remove the grid and home-build a flat back panel; I am 100% certain that contrived Nabi blocks aside, the real reason they made the back like that is to stop adults buying the tablet and not giving it to a kid.)

Right on! So any thought of rear facing camera, flash, NFC, ambient light sensor? Different case entirely?

Wireless charging sounds cool, so does GPS.

Edit: btw what wireless charging system are you planning to implement? Powermat, touchstone?

The camera and flash sound awesome but its very doubtful we will ever see a source for the nabi so installing rear would mean having to remove the front(I think) and to be honest I use my tab for skype more than photography. I've had NFC on my phone for quite a while and ive never used it, im not even sure of a useful application for it. The idea of a different case is awesome but im thinking more to just redesign a back plate to get rid of the lip from that kinabi plate crap (I kinda like the curvy kids feel to it.)

I will more than likely go with the touchstone just cause of the price point but I'm looking at the power mat cause I'd like to be able to drop my One X on charge all night too.

Do you think it's possible to solder 2 wires from the micro usb to the charging port and that would activate usb charge?
