Many users who have upgraded to BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 this morning have been wondering where their BlackBerry Bridge Browser went all of a sudden. Turns out that it has dissapeared by design due to it being redundant for non BES users. According to this latest RIM knowledge base article the BlackBerry Bridge Icon only shows up on PlayBooks when the BlackBerry Smartphone is associated with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES).
According to RIM:
This is by design as the native Browser provides the same functionality when bridged, therefore making the Bridge Browser redundant. The Bridge Browser is present when connected to a BlackBerry smartphone associated with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server in order to allow browsing corporate intra-nets.
In other words now that the native PlayBook Browser is fully capable of browsing the web through the Bridge non-BES users have no use for the Bridge Browser. The only reason you would use the Bridge Browser now is to browse your companies internal websites.
