Optimizing Your Data Plan on the BlackBerry PlayBook


The BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet has a unique approach to email and personal information management (PIM), which many customers have embraced. This approach provides advanced security features, cost effectiveness, and convenience while making use of the tools you are already familiar with. BlackBerry® Bridge™ is what makes it all happen: Bridge allows a wireless and secure connection over Bluetooth® between a BlackBerry® smartphone running OS 5.0 or higher and the BlackBerry PlayBook. This secure connection allows access to the BlackBerry smartphone's email, address book, calendar, memo pad, task list, BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger™) and browsing functionality through the BlackBerry PlayBook.

BlackBerry Bridge uses the IT policies already on the smartphone, enabling the enterprise to confidently deploy the PlayBook. The real benefit of BlackBerry Bridge is the way it leverages your existing BlackBerry data plan when your PlayBook is not in WI-FI® coverage. This means you are able to search the web, read and respond to emails, book appointments or download files inside and outside of WI-FI coverage without incurring an additional monthly data plan charge.
