Bluetooth connection

Is it possible to connect IPod or IPad with BB Playbook via bluetooth?

Or to connect a cell phone with the Playbook via bluetooth pairing?

Re: Bluetooth connection

I'm not sure, but you can try.  For example, I can't pair my old blackberry stereo gateway with my playbook.

If your smartphone is a blackberry, then you can pair it to the playbook through blackberry bridge using a bluetooth connection.

Re: Bluetooth connection

You can connect many things but the support does not exist to do any transfer of information. ie. I can connect my GPS, it sees it but there is no transfer of data. I would expect the same first the ipod or ipad. I don't have them so I don't really know. This may chsnge in the future.

Re: Bluetooth connection

I can connect to my Ipad3 but all it supports is as a remote for limited media, no support for file transfers.
