    Search all over and I have not seen a definitive answer...does the Playbook work with the Blackberry Bluetooth SmartCard reader?

    Has anyone actually got one working to log onto a corporate OWA site?

    Thanks.

    My understanding is that it does not. I have not seen any information otherwise either. I own a sled myself but could not find a way to get it to work. I think it's another item that should be added to any PB upcoming update

    This is the closest thing that I have found, that the PB does not support S/MIME:

    KB27597-S/MIME support on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet

    But I still have not had an answer with pairing and using the SmartCard reader for unlocking or signing onto a site.

    After talking with customer service...the answer is no. I cannot comprehend why this issue has not been addressed in the 2 years this tablet has been around. Like you said they need to put this feature in an update.

    I can't answer the first question, but I do have a bookmark that points to my company's OWA portal which I use when I'm not using the Citrix Receiver connected to my workstation, which provides me full access to Outlook as well as everything else I have installed or accessible from it. If your company supports Citrix, I'd check it out...I've done real work on the PlayBook using this method.
