You cannot use any dongle or thumb drive(unless dingled) However you can connect it with wifi. If you have gprs/3g enable device you can connect it through bluetooth.
The playbook is a really good buy at its price. After the new OS came out I really cant think of a reason NOT to buy it at that price. Apps are quite plenty in number and should suffice for the average user. ALL apps HD in particular.

anuresh, 08 Jun 2012hey any one tell. me that all of blackberry playbook games needs money to download.
There are Many Free HD Games available like Asphalt 6, Need for Speed Shift, etc they are really great games on Playbook, also other paid games has just half doller price.
If you are HD Game Addicted Person go for Play Book you will get N Number of Games, Android fails in this.
I've had my Playbook for 5 months now and I have to say it's kind of a disappointment. It doesnt have a good cross-platform video chat app, calendar fails to sync, email app is laggy, browser does not have full functionality as you would have on an android tablet. At this point I want to sell it and try to get something better that works as it should.
PlayBook is really amazing. Build quality is excellent. Great thing is that you can use VPN. I am using Superb VPN BlackBerry VPN Services and it is working great. I can bypass all restrictions.
Joseph, 08 Jun 2012This is supposed to have one of the best browsers around, yet I find flash has tremendous amou... moreUr coment shows....u have no idea about playbook at all !!

hey any one tell. me that all of blackberry playbook games needs money to download.
This is supposed to have one of the best browsers around, yet I find flash has tremendous amounts of issues and the browser constantly crashes on me. The app world is growing but most of the apps are paid apps and they don't extend the functionality of the device that much. The only good thing it has going for it right now are games and even then there aren't that many. This device can accel with the right software, but awesome it stands I'd rather have gotten the quad core android tabs coming out for $200 which is less than I paid for this piece of junk.
AnonD-57230, 07 Jun 2012does it support usb on the gonope it does not support USB - that's the downer on it unless you are in a wifi zone you are cooked. you can't even plug in a 3g Dongle. Everything else is fine on this device except for the connectivity issue and the fact that Windows recognises it as a network drive and not a USB device. Also you have very very limited apps and you have to pay for everything.
