Many applications will work with Bridge even native email on playbook ( Exchange Active Sync account ).

 

Web can be used on bridge too, some carriers like AT&T block it but you can get the unblocked version of Bridge instead.

 

App World does need a wifi connection though and most phones on OS 7.1 can be used as a mobile personal wifi hotspot (carrier charges might apply)
