Let’s say you’re about to leave on an international flight. You buy in-flight Wi-Fi so that you can browse the web, check and respond to email, play a game or two, etc., etc. If you have a tablet like the iPad or iPad 2, you simply use it with the in-flight Wi-Fi. No brainer there… What do you do, however, if you have the BlackBerry PlayBook and use BlackBerry Bridge for email?
Do you get the Wi-Fi for you BlackBerry so that it can access your email? Do you get Wi-Fi for the PlayBook so that you can access the web on a bigger screen with full fidelity? Do you get Wi-Fi access for both devices? What do you do?
Rod went on to say that he thinks that BlackBerry Bridge has a lot of potential because he is seeing more and more people opting to use their tablet devices for email over their phones, BlackBerry devices included, so long as they have internet connectivity. The problem, however, is that BlackBerry Bridge is fairly limited if you only have access to Wi-Fi from just one device with no cellular service, and, you would like to do more with your PlayBook than just use it for email.
What do you guys think? It seems to me like BlackBerry Bridge would play well with road warriors, but, not being able to use your PlayBook effectively while in flight seems like it could be a bit of an issue…
