BlackBerry Bridge icon is no longer present on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet

Article ID: KB29992

Type: Support Content

Last Modified: 02-21-2012


Product(s) Affected:

  • BlackBerry PlayBook tablets
  • BlackBerry 7 OS and earlier
  • BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet
  • BlackBerry® Bridge™ 2.0
After upgrading to BlackBerry® Bridge™ 2.0 on a BlackBerry® smartphone that is not associated with a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, the Bridge Browser icon is no longer present on the BlackBerry PlayBook.
This is by design as the native Browser provides the same functionality when bridged, therefore making the Bridge Browser redundant.
CollapseAdditional Information
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.
