BlackBerry® Bridge™ provides a unique way to connect your BlackBerry® smartphone and your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet, opening up a world of possibilities and interactions. With BlackBerry Bridge allowing such a range of functionality, Ty from the Inside BlackBerry Help Blog and I thought we’d run through a few of the ways that you can use it to enhance your work, entertainment, sharing, communication, and more. With a variety of mobile devices at our fingertips, it’s important that they work together. Check out our top 10 ways to use BlackBerry Bridge with your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet below:
1. Extending BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) to your BlackBerry PlayBook
The BlackBerry Messenger experience on your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet features an enhanced interface and solid functionality. If you’re using your tablet and a BBM message comes into your BlackBerry smartphone, simply pop open the BlackBerry Bridge folder on your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and tap “BBM” to read it. I particularly find BBM via BlackBerry Bridge on my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to be useful for viewing photos, voice notes, or files sent to me from BBM contacts.
2. Stay connected without Wi-Fi®
It’s a pretty connected world out there with Wi-Fi at work, home, coffee shops, and airports. When you’re on the move, however, it’s important to stay online without skipping a beat. Thanks to BlackBerry Bridge, my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet comes with me and remains connected the entire time through the wireless radio on my BlackBerry smartphone.
