    Hi folks,

    today I was cleaning some mess after various Android apps testing when I spotted an interesting content in PlayBook App Manager (Chrome plugin for developers) - sys.bridgeSMS 2.1.0.11. So I tried to launch it and it did, first there was a pop-up saying that no device is connected to bridge (BT was off) and suggesting to launch bluetooth, I did so, but the app crashed immediately and keeps crashing everytime I try to re-launch it, I managed to catch a screenshot though. I guess it crashes just because it is blocked by RIM. But anyway, I think this is definitely a trustworthy hint that Bridge SMS is coming to PlayBook OS 2.1 final

    I would if I knew how to get the file out of PlayBook, but I guess that's impossible without a root.

    Good find! I was gonna ask if you took that photo - your PlayBook wallpaper - since your avatar has a camera in it. Nice photo!

    Lol.. did no one believe me when I first posted about it long ago? Sure, the timing is off now but that stuff happens.

    "As it stands, there is no date for this to be released or if the versions noted here are final, they could go higher before actual release but the information was worth sharing with you all. "

    This is awesome, I hope it is solid when it launches because BBM on my playbook lags a lot and isn't always pleasurable to use.
    Also after using my mother in laws iPad for a little while I realize that the Playbook has some catching up to do in the smoothness of all apps category. Playbook OS works great but I find the native apps like the browser and PIM apps need to be smoothed out. BB10 will no doubt address this as it will be far more complete than the current Playbook OS.

    Bring on the goodies RIM!!! More features the better. Go Team Blackberry!!!

    Someone found this sometime back. One or two releases ago.

    As with everything with RIM, it useless until the customer can use it!

    Sort of like buying a bike, but the wheels are still in development.

    Hope RIM throws us a bone soon. A 2.1 that is as good as current would do.

    Dang it, I went and said soon

    The integration will be a good move for RIM.
    The majority of BB phone messaging is done to smartphone users other than BB's.
    Therefore, BBM bridge is not useful for them.

    I just wonder - how often do you guys use bridged apps? I used to use them a lot on OS1, but since most of apps can use bridged internet access and since we've got native PIM apps on OS2 I find myself using bridge just to share internet while I'm not on WiFi and to control my PlayBook when it's hooked up to HDMI. Bridge SMS will be fine for those moments when you're too lazy to reach for your phone, but I realize that it's not such a game changer for me.

    Although I sometimes wish I could pick up phone calls on my PlayBook Especially when that pop-up appears with a button to mute your ringtone, I can easily imagine two more buttons there labeled Answer/Deny

    Hey, where are the native Task and Notes apps? I missed that update!!!

    On a more serious note, very true... I'm not using Bridge messages/contacts/calendar at all but I keep all but messages enable (not huge on double notifications) in case I need to make sure I have the info on the BB device (Google can handle adding it to the PlayBook native app later, I rely on the phone more than I do the tablet).
