Hi all, Andrey here with an important BlackBerry® Bridge™ update. I’m happy to share the news that the BlackBerry Bridge app is now available to AT&T® customers! The app will appear in the BlackBerry App World™ catalogue throughout the day, but you can get it right away by searching for “BlackBerry Bridge” within BlackBerry App World.
For those not familiar with the BlackBerry Bridge app, it mirrors the existing messages, contacts, calendar, memopad, tasks, and BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) that appear on your BlackBerry smartphone. For example, through BlackBerry Bridge, you can use your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to respond to an email that was received on your BlackBerry smartphone or send a picture to a BBM contact. Pretty cool!
Another feature of the BlackBerry Bridge application is the ability to browse the Internet on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet using your BlackBerry smartphone’s data connection**. This feature is designed to enable you to access the Internet (or the intranet site of your organization) using your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, even when you’re outside of Wi-Fi® coverage.
Our friends over at the Inside BlackBerry Help Blog have a bunch of great posts for users looking to set up the BlackBerry Bridge app and to learn how to maximize that experience. They also have a new post out today explaining the various ways users can connect their BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to the Internet. Check them out!
So download the BlackBerry Bridge application right now and don’t forget to post a comment about how you use it with your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet!
