For me, Bridge is the most redeeming quality lf the PB. It has worked well for me for nearly a year. I travel extensively and the PB screen is much easier on the eyes than my Bold 9930 when out of WIFI range. It remains the single BEST feature.
I agree though that more apps (a.k.a. Android compatibility) would enhance the experience. I bought my PB for 2 reasons: Bridge and App compatibility - both advertised all the way back in 2010 before PB's initial release.
Here is an example -- Give us Skype. My wife has an iPad2. I thought I might be able to video chat with her on my travels when I bought the PB. A year is a long time to wait, and some of the workarounds for it are tedious and unreliable.
This is a good thread. It's helped keep me from totally regretting my decision to buy my PB.

I was told and read articles indicating the Playbook OS2 update will be issued toward the end of February. Earlier, there were some articles saying by at least February 21st. We are getting very close to the end of February.
As for the Bridge program, this will also have to be updated to have the added options. There will be many new interesting features with OS2. Since I am a heavy Playbook user I am very anxious for this.
