Kevin from CrackBerry has again posted a very important feature of playbook; It’s ‘Intranet’. Users can tether their mobile phones(not just BlackBerrys) to BlackBerry PlayBook and use carrier data mutually. The ‘BlackBerry Bridge’ will not work with other phonest, but flowing of internet is accessible with any non-BlackBerry smartphones too. Now that’s amazing!
Connecting to the internet via Bluetooth on the BlackBerry PlayBook
Before you begin you’ll need to verify the following:
- The wireless service plan of the device must support tethering.
- The device must be compatible with Bluetooth technology. To find out what Bluetooth profiles the device uses, see the information that came with the device.
- Bluetooth DUN must be enabled. If this IT policy is not available, check with the service provider or administrator.

Before you get started, make sure Bluetooth is enabled on both the phone and tablet. To activate Bluetooth on the PlayBook:
Tap the settings icon on the status bar
Then choose Internet Tethering
Tap Turn On
2. Connect to your BlackBerry smartphone
Tap the settings icon on the status bar, then again selected Internet Tethering
