Playbook with a BB device
Playbook nation. i am currently using a Torch 9800 with my Playbook and what I really like is the bridge feature. Last Friday I got an email from work that they were upgrading my phone to a iPhone os. They pay for my phones and bills . I have wifi at home but the biggest advantage to me was that over half the day I don't have wifi and bridge filled that gap.
I am worried that my PB won't get as much use with no abiliy to bridge using the iPhone. Does anyone else use a device other than a BB with their PB and can give some thoughts on their usage of the PB without the ability to bridge.

While I feel you will get the most from your Playbook when you own a BB there are ways to use non BB to tether and use WiFi
wifi peer to peer no internet required
You will not be able to use bridge to view email,contacts, and calendar. It does workI hope this helps.

Two of the main reasons I purchased the PlayBook is size and bridge, without a Blackberry phone, it takes away the full capabilities of the PlayBook, however the PlayBook is still a formidable device. Tethering is still an option with another smartphone and enjoyment with the playbook will still be available
