I wanted to shed some light on a question I’ve been asked a few times by friends and family after upgrading to BlackBerry® Bridge™ 2.0. The question in particular: “After upgrading to BlackBerry Bridge 2.0 on my BlackBerry® smartphone, my BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet no longer shows the BlackBerry Bridge Browser icon. Where did it go?”
Here’s your answer:
When the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet was launched in April 2011, BlackBerry smartphone users had the ability to install BlackBerry Bridge 1.0, which allowed them to pair their smartphone and tablet together to get even more features. One of these features was the “Bridge Browser”, which allowed users to browse the web on their BlackBerry PlayBook tablet using their existing BlackBerry smartphone’s connection, if supported by their wireless service provider.
