Although this is included in Bridge, I find the remote function indispensable. I make a lot of video and PPT presentations and using my phone to control the proceedings is a God send. All I need is my PB, my micro projector and my phone and I'm ready to go.

I use my bose soundlink and Motorola bluetooth headphones with it. And bridge. Why would you say "except for bridge what's the reason". Bridge alone is a great reason.Phones:

That said, and I'll keep repeating it - best case scenario for WiFi throughput is significantly lower than USB throughput, so larger files (like video files) will transfer much quicker using USB (assuming USB 2.0 connectivity).

Nokia Symbian phones and most Android phones support USB Host/OTG so you can hook up flash drives, card readers and external hard disks directly if they support the USB Mass Storage protocol. The PB doesn't support reading USB MSC partitions or provide one of its own. The PB can't act as USB Host without rooting either so direct USB connections between devices are out of the question.
If I'm out in the field with my non-BB phone and PB, I can't transfer data between them without a computer or an intervening Wi-fi network. I guess RIM's initial plan was for the PB to be a companion to a Blackberry, much like what Palm tried to do with the Folio. That was feasible two years ago but now it's a tiny market segment. A tablet should be a standalone device.

Theoritcal max throughput on 802.11n is one thing, but most implementations get nowhere near maximum - in fact at most WiFi networks I connect to, I'm lucky if I get less than half the theoritcal max - and theoritcal 802.11n max is about 2/3 of USB 2.0 max. So normal situations, WiFi throughput is a fraction of USB 2.0 throughput.

I asked a similar question when I first got my playbook. I wanted to send pictures from my android or N8 to be stored on playbook (playbook camera not good enough for close up shots).
I did not find an answer that would work for me.

BB10 supposedly has full BT file transfer capability so you can directly send files between devices.
