    What PlayBook Features Work Over Bridge & Wi-Fi

    After a very successful BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 launch today, you may still be wondering which of these new apps will work on WiFi or Bridge.

    RIM has been really secretive in the past of what will/will not work when bridged. With the release of OS 2.0, we now can see some knowledge base documentation for Bridge.

    App World Wi-Fi connection is required
