Developer Opens Up BlackBerry PlayBook Bridge From Desktop


Now this is an interesting development and one that I think RIM should keep an eye on. The N4BB crew spotted a slick new app that is currently waiting for RIM’s approval in App World that opens up the BlackBerry Bridge on the PlayBook to your Desktop. This DesktopBridge app essentially will let you use the PlayBook bridge on your PC over SSL along with all its apps like BBM. In other words your PlayBook is bridged to your BlackBerry smartphone and your desktop accesses the bridge through the PlayBook.

If RIM approves the app, and I am not sure if they will, then the developer Xitij Ritesh Patel (@xitijpatel) plans on offering it for $4.99. Kind of a cool idea and one I really wish RIM would build in natively…

  1. Not only should RIM make there own app for this – it should bridge directly to the phone without the need for a Playbook at all. That would really be slick. However, if it also had an option to do remote control of the Playbook and the “Open on…” that would be awesome.

  2. I agree with Bob’s vision and honestly don’t know why this hasn’t been implemented via RIM years ago… Seen a few apps over the years that try to bring this feat to us… But I’d love to see something RIM made and therefore integrated to the fullest potential…. Like where Mr Patel seems to be taking this app tho, and since RIM hasn’t made waves on this, I’m looking forward to see what his app will offer. I HOPE RIM approves this :) $5 is decent for something that is sure to get daily use in my work week…
