Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

If you mean "can the BB function as a WiFi HotSpot?", then under the correct circumstances, yes...see this:

  • KB31857 How to setup and manage a Mobile Hotspot Connection

On the other hand, if you are looking for interaction between your BB and other devices directly with each other, there are different variables at play, and all would function via BlueTooth:

 

With BB PlayBook, you can use the BB Bridge for various interaction between the two

  • KB27823 How to setup and configure BlackBerry Bridge
  • KB26554 How to install the BlackBerry Bridge application

With other devices, capabilities via BT will vary:

  • KB04010 Supported Bluetooth technology features

All in all, perhaps I don't quite understand your specific query...if such is the case, then please clarify.

 

Good luck and let us know!
