Now here’s an interesting piece of informational nugget – the BlackBerry PlayBook will not only be able to tether to a BlackBerry smartphone, but to make it all the more appealing to everyone else, it can also play nice with any phone. This is probably to make up for the lack of built-in 3G connectivity despite coming with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities right out of the box. Of course, this piece of information did not come from Research in Motion (RIM) themselves who claim that you can tether the tablet to a BlackBerry smartphone, but rather, CrackBerry who claims that you can tether to any phone. It goes without saying, however, that you will need a BlackBerry to work with the BlackBerry Bridge software, but if getting online only is your main priority, then just tether the PlayBook to a compatible phone through a Bluetooth connection.
