February 21, 2012 | By | Add a Comment

We’re counting down the hours as we look forward to the update of PlayBook OS 2.0 becoming unleashed soon. The rumor is said to be 4 AM. While waiting for the update, Bridge has been updated, and you don’t need to wait for OS 2.0 to check it out.

So what’s new with Bridge?

  • Use your smartphone’s keyboard, trackpad and touchscreen to remotely control your PlayBook
  • Open attachments, files and Browser URLs directly on your PlayBook Tablet from your BlackBerry Smartphone menu
  • Copy/Paste from anywhere in your BlackBerry Bridge PlayBook apps
  • Use device Properties menu to turn on and Off BlackBerry Bridge email calendar, and address book accounts
  • Improve stability with multiple apiring and connectivity bug fixes
  • Various UX improvements
  • Note: Bridge Remote control feature requires BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.0 to be installed on your Tablet

I tried out the remote and I have to admit, it’s very easy to use and very impressive. I’m trying to stay awake for the update. I feel more anxious than a little kid waiting for the Easter Bunny. The BlackBerry is much better than chocolate any day.

The remote not only has the ability to use your BlackBerry device as a mouse, but also as a keyboard with all the keys included.
