BlackBerry Bridge is an application that exists on a BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry smartphone, enabling the two to exchange information between one another. BlackBerry Bridge gives both devices access to one another’s file system, and allows PlayBook users to access messages, SMS messages, calendar, contacts, memo, tasks, and BBM. BlackBerry Bridge also allows the smartphone to remotely control the PlayBook with a virtual mouse (with full access to pane gestures) and typing through the handheld’s keyboard.
