BlackBerry Bridge for BlackBerry 10 Revealed in Documentation
I have been wondering if RIM would continue their support of BlackBerry Bridge from the BlackBerry PlayBook to BlackBerry 10. Brett pointed out that the latest IT Policy document released by RIM reveals that this feature will be included. Specifically RIM made an IT Policy rule for BlackBerry 10 that allows enterprises to:
Specify whether a BlackBerry 10 smartphone can allow a BlackBerry PlayBook
tablet to access work data on the smartphone using the BlackBerry Bridge app. If you set
this rule to Disallow, the smartphone cannot allow a tablet to access work data on the
smartphone using the BlackBerry Bridge app.
There is no word on if the BlackBerry Bridge will allow access to all features of the current Bridge so I guess we will just figure out. RIM also confirms BlackBerry Video and screen sharing support along with Voice Control and Voice Dictation but that was practically a given.

I never doubted that Bridge would be present as I am sure Thorsten said the main features of BBOS would be coming across; it was such a key feature and USP. One rumor is that the internet tethering would be default when connecting via Bridge but that seems like a battery drain to me.Regards,

If one reads between the lines, the BES policy shown in the documentation noted above makes things a little interesting. If "Blackberry Bridge" is turned off from BES 10, you cannot get your "work data" from the BB10 phone to the Playbook but it doesn't say anything about your personal data. This looks like Blackberry Balance in action. If your Blackberry has separate personal and work profiles, you just can't get your work data. You should still be able to get your personal data from your Bb10 phone to your Bb10 Playbook through Bluetooth. So one would assume that the Bb 10 Playbook should have Balance also. That's good and very useful.
