just wanted to know if I can browse internet on BB playbook using Blackberry Bridge (through my BB phone which has an unlimited browsing plan)? Or only BBM, emails etc is allowed through BB Bridge?
@michael, it does have its own pin, it's just not usable at the moment. however it will reflect the pin on the bb it's bridged to
Dissappointed:(no sim card slot.a must for asian market.though good may fail badly as no sim option........

this is a good tablet only if you have a BB phone so you can pair together otherwise you are better of with androids the better ones are the samsung 8.9 and 10.1

Does this MS Excel, MS Word, etc. how does this compare to the HTC Flyer or the Samsung Galaxy P1000. I am busy shopping for one and not sure which to get. The key difference to the Samsung is that the memory (512MB vs 1GB), else I can;t find much.
Thank you so much for answering back my queries. But, i am puzzled by the fact, that THIS CANNOT run BBM. Do you guys have an idea whether they will sooner or later incorporate the BBM thing in this kick ass gadget. And is the graphic chipset better than Nvidia Tegra 2
can you plug it into your computer and download music from your computer?
i am wondering if you have to pay for a monthly bill for this? and on the facebook application can you chat with people?
I saw from the user opinions that in order to go online while you are on the bus or public transport, you need to have a BB phone as a bridge to access 3G service. Even there's wifi, the BBM won't work.
I think this defeats the purpose as a mobile device. In my opinion, a mobile device must be able to standalone to access the network. If like now, I will not go for a playbook, but an iPad2 or Galaxy Tab instead. However, to me, this mobile device need not be use for phone calls or sms. But the social media, emails and access to Cloud storage is important.
Next, I'm from Singapore. I feel BB service center in here is no good. This pushes me further away. By the way, I'm a happy BB Torch 9800 user. Had been on BB for the passed 2 years.
