    Does the pb have a builtin screenshot function or app?

    I find that's a feature missing on many android devices, iPad has it.

    yes, i believe kevin said all you have to do is hold down the volume up/down button at the same time and it takes a screenshot.

    Yeah, too bad the Playbook doesn't have the ability to go on the internet. Oh wait...

    Well, sure it can go on the net - but it's too bad there aren't any websites that provide e-mail (webmail) use so you could e-mail the screenshots. Oh wait...

    1. Push vol up and down at the same time as stated

    2. You can e-mail them via Bridge or by logging into any web mail account and attaching them as you would from a computer without your e-mail built into it.

    3. You do not have to "root" or jail break your iPhone to take screen shots, push the standbuy and the "back" (little circle at the bottom) buttons at the same time.

    the picture is located in the pictures, all pictures folder.
    You can either use usb to pc to copy it, or attach it to an email

    screenshots cannot be taken while Bridge is active.

    make sure you are disconnected from the BlackBerry Bridge and try it again.

    I believe that the screenshot is really located in the Camera folder as opposed to the virtual ALL folder.

    you're right, but i i forgot to mention the most important part.

    if you're connected to BES, you cannot take screenshots while connected to Bridge.

    sorry for the confusion.

    Mine always works, even when I don't want it to take a screenshot.

    For example.. taking it into the housing and pressing the buttons.
