BlackBerry Bridge AT&T

Good news, AT&T BlackBerry users! Beginning today you'll finally be able to install BlackBerry Bridge on your ATT 'Berry of choice. For those not in the know, Bridge allows a user to tether his or her BlackBerry smartphone to a PlayBook and access things like email, calendar, BBMs, etc., on the slate that normally wouldn't be available. Bridge also allows the currently WiFi-only PlayBook to surf the web using a smartphone's data connection, although AT&T customers will need to be signed up for an appropriate tethering plan to use this particular feature. RIM says that BlackBerry Bridge will be appearing in App World throughout the day, but if you just can't wait you should be able to find it right now by searching for "BlackBerry Bridge."

Although it's kind of strange that it's taken this long to make Bridge available to AT&T customers, especially since all of the other major carriers offered the functionality right when the PlayBook launched, I'm sure many Ma Bell BlackBerry owners are just happy to finally see the app arrive. Get to downloading, guys and gals! Just be sure to come back once you've got Bridge up and running and let us know how it's working out for you, k?
