BlackBerry today made Bridge version 3.0 available to BlackBerry 10 devices. Bridge is a utility that connects a BlackBerry smartphone with the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. According to BlackBerry, the company focused on bringing a few key features to the BB10 platform. Bridge 3.0 can share the smartphone's internet connection with a PlayBook, control the PlayBook remotely, and share bookmarks and files between the two thanks to the new "Share" framework built into BB10. However, some important features available to older versions of the app have been removed. Specifically, BlackBerry Messenger, SMS, and email are no longer possible to use via BlackBerry Bridge, though they will be added back in later this year. Blackberry Bridge 3.0 for BlackBerry 10 smartphones is a free download from BlackBerry World.
