Since someone mentioned this thread in the new OS 2....(not BB10) thread, I thought I would add another reason I don't want less email features on Bridge:
Besides not wanting to lose Bridge email just because it is convenient, I would really miss that fact the MY Bridge email is filtered through BIS and so that only some email gets forwarded to my phone (and through Bridge, to my pb). So that while I was just in Europe, I was getting email on by phone filtered by BIS so only stuff from people I wanted to hear from while on vacation (with pricy data) were coming through and I did not have to download ALL using Native Email. BIS filters are terrific for limiting what I get on my phone and by Bridge-extension, on my pb.
I just get the feeling that Rim is NOT going to restore those features but I don't know that. Maybe I'm reading too much into the bb blog entry at:
Introducing BlackBerry Bridge v3.0 for BlackBerry 10 «Inside BlackBerry - The Official BlackBerry Blog

They release very little!
When they do release something, it's like listening to politicians. The subject is mentioned briefly to give you the impression that they are going to discuss that subject and when they finish, you know less than you did at the start. This is an art form that they excel at.

I just read this Blog for the first time. It certainly sounds like RIM is doing away with email in the bridge. The disappointment is clear in the comments. Maybe they will either change there minds or make it a priority to get these features back. I'm thinking twice about a Z10 purchase. I like the way things work now and don't want to lose functionality.
Maybe if more people share their feelings in the Blog it would have an impact on decisions.

I posted somewhere else but can't find it now. But what if the new bridge was actually a mirroring of the screen with input. At the moment they have screen sharing, if they extended that idea and made it screen sharing with 'pass control' like netmeeting or something, then they don't have to code every single app, and we have access to all the Z10 functionality from the playbook.

Re: Bridge from playbook to BB10
whenever a bb10 updates happens I won't be upgrading until everyone does and reports back. I love bridge and use it all day. splashtop and bridge make my tablet a full multi purpose machine. I want a Q but won't sacrifice bridge functionality. so that also means I have to wait until others report backSprint Q10

You know this feature doesn't work with a Samsung so you are not bitterly disappointed when it doesn't, ha ha ha. Got you there!
By the way have you seen my brown paper bag anywhere?

Part of my day-job is to read long and boring documents to extract the (often very) few sentences that have meaningful content... I winnow the wheat from the chaff. I've now "winnowed" that blog entry and didn't end up with enough wheat to make a small cracker!
Andrey F. has clearly been on all the courses that teach how to write meaningless management-speak - I stripped out whole paragraphs which contained nothing of substance.
What I was left with was: "We've taken away all the features of Bridge except for the interweb pipe and using it as a TV controller. One day, if we can get the Bridge to work with the BB10 hub, we might bring you BBM".

Part of me is feeling distraught and wants to make its way to north pier but looking on the bright side, I have never been "winnowed" before so I might forgive you if you help me find my brown paper bag.

"Progress" like the Bridge update, plus the myriad of "issues" posted over in the BB10 forums, is why I haven't strolled down to Ye Olde Phone Shoppe and purchased a Z10 - even though they are currently on sale in Merry Olde England.
Even Crackberry Kevin is posting that he's sent RIM a list of over 100 issues present in BB10... so I think I'll pass on getting a Z10 for a while.Proud Member of the PlayBook Beta Test Team (Since June 2011)

CAN YOU READ THIS RIM or BBRY: I want to be able to open MEMOS that are on my bbphone on my PB. I want to only setup email on my bbphone and not duplicate the effort on my pb.
I think my cold is making me more irritable but in the face of Rim's bs, it is easy.
