for anyone who posts no 3g i will clarify 2 things. one it can connect to any blackberry through bridge and use the network and memory. 2 it can connect to any smartphone or even non smart phone (although you wouldn't want to connect a non smartphone) through internet tethering built into the playbook. so basically if you have a phone it has 3g without having to pay for a shared plan.
Folks! why are u guys so ignorant and talk like u already done ur research?
Its a playbook and not a phone
there are models that support wifi
there are models that supports LTE
who in hell said that no data connection for this gadgeT?
Booo, 22 Mar 2011Blackberry without data connection = EPIC FAIL!check out the lte version for 3G and stop posting epic fail every time you see no 3G!
TB, 07 Apr 2011its crap! cant make calls and dont have the benefit of bis ! epic _fail indedeed!It already says 3G - NO....what made you think you could make calls from it!! -_-
Get a 3G enabled version if you wanna make calls!
I played around with it yesterday. Screen looks nice, UI is smooth, but it's really heavy and features are minimal... The weight really ruins it a lot.

Booo, 22 Mar 2011Blackberry without data connection = EPIC FAIL!wifi means you can connect it your phone, therefore stay connected.
NJay Maldito, 09 Mar 2011What does WiFi + LTE means?wifi is wifi :p and lte(long term evolution) is 4g cellular data
If Playbook doesn't have BIS...why wasting my money to buy it...better buy ipad then.
The WiFi + 4G version of this will be launched exclusively from Sprint this summer. :)
Okay guys so if The Playbook doesn't support GSM, it means no BLackberry Internet Service.
How would you go about taking advantage of BIS on your playbook then?
Do you attach your Blackberry Handest via USB to browse the net or hows this to work?
