Help Us Keep an Eye Out for BlackBerry Bridge v2.0 Update!


RIM has always put out updates to BlackBerry Bridge as a precursor to a BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet OS update. From what a RIM employee just confirmed of PlayBook OS 2.0 launching on February 21st we can only assume that BlackBerry Bridge will get its update to v2.0 sometime in the next 4 days. This one will be tricky since RIM is closed from Saturday until Monday with the launch happening on Tuesday. Since Monday is Family Day in Canada and Presidents Day in the US there is a chance that RIM might release it today or tomorrow so they have support staff on hand to deal with any issues if they arise. It is also just as possible that they will wait until the last minute like some previous releases.

I have been told many times before that the reason RIM releases bridge at least a day earlier is because they need to give it time to propagate it in App World which takes at least a day. Either way help us keep a look out on the BlackBerry Bridge page in App World for updates and send us a tip if you see something new!

  1. I’ll be on the lookout…believe me!

  2. One big question is whether the updated Bridge will be compatible with the current PlayBook OS v1.0 — if not, it could further complicate the release schedule.

    • My guess is yes, considering all previous Bridge updates have been compatible with the existing version of the OS. The whole upgrade to 2.0 might throw a wrench in it though.. personally, I’d be fine if they both were released at the same time.

    • My thoughts exactly. I have a feeling, due to all the new features and changes, we might only see the new Bridge app when OS2 itself…

  3. What is the latest version?

  4. I am getting the message: The item you selected cannot be found. I figure there is a good chance it will be upgraded shortly.

  5. My mistake! Nothing new…the Bridge app is accessible…just not through my Playbook.
