BlackBerry Bridge finally becomes a reality for AT&T customers
Well, that certainly took some time, but the inevitable is final here for AT&T customers as they’re now able to download the BlackBerry Bridge app from the App World.

Brining on some much needed core functionality to RIM’s tablet, like finally being able to see your calendar and emails on the BlackBerry PlayBook, the BlackBerry Bridge app is required to be installed on a BlackBerry smartphone in order for it to work jointly with the PlayBook. When BlackBerry Bridge first came lurking onto the scene, AT&T BlackBerry owners were sorely left out of the mix – though, they’re now finally able to download it for free.

However, it’s worth noting that you’ll be forced to subscribe to a $20 per month tethering plan in order to browse the web on the PlayBook as it’s tethered to your network connected BlackBerry smartphone.

It's free. But you have to pay to use it. Makes total sense.

How can tethering cost more when it's the same device that already has a data plan?

It's more like an illegal tax.

Seriously, if we have 2GB package, why can't we use the 2GB however we want? Instead we're forced into a 4GB package even if we don't need one.
