No Download Limit in BlackBerry PlayBook Browser


A few readers asked if I could test if RIM implemented a download limit in the BlackBerry PlayBook browser. I could not find gigabyte sized files to test out but I did test out downloading BlackBerry Desktop Manager through the browser which is 115mb and that worked like a charm. I then tried downloading a 700MB+ ISO image of Ubuntu and that also completed downloading with not hiccups though it was a tad slower than my PC.

  1. Being on WiFi I could see this working well. Hopefully, you didn’t try it through your phones data!

  2. So did Ubuntu install?

  3. This shouldn’t be a surprise. It seems to me that there’s no download limit for devices running 6.0 and up. I’m able to download large files on my 9700.
    What I’m really interested in, is how carriers will try to cap over the air data usage.
