Hi There


At the office, I don't have Wifi, but can plug my playbook into to my PC. with my 9780, I get "bypass" mode where my internet/data goes over the PC.


With the playbook, it seems that unless you tether to a phone (not allowed with our BES) you need wifi?


Is there anyway to access the web/app store when plugged into a PC?
