AT&T today announced that it has approved Research In Motion's Bridge application for use on its BlackBerry devices. The Bridge app is essential for BlackBerry users if they wish to access email, calendar, and contacts data on their PlayBook tablet. In a statement emailed to AllThingsD, an AT&T spokesperson said, "AT&T has thoroughly reviewed the application and at noon today it will be made available via BlackBerry App World. Our customers' wireless experience is always our number one priority." Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless approved the Bridge application back in April, when the PlayBook was released.

Play Nice for now?

I wonder if AT&T is just posturing, allowing this, so they look like they're playing nice. Honestly, they probably figure its no big deal, since the Epic Fail I mean the PlayBook isn't exactly flying of the shelves.
I always wonder about ATT's motives when there late with these types of things.
The holdup probably had more to do with AT&T wanting an extra $20 from it's customers for web surfing. I don't think they really knew how to handle the Bridge app. It's a little unique.
