Without seeing the internals, it's impossible to know. Those pins are the charge/sync connection--note that there is no microUSB connection.
It's possible the assembly holding the pins is separate and moveable; its also possible that it's part of the main circuit board, in which case modding would be next to impossible for average DIY folks.
Even if the pins can be moved, the connections to the main board in things like this are often hair-thin wires that are very easy to break and next to impossible to solder back together.
I've tried mods/repairs like this in the past, and failed more often than I got it to work.
