I know using a cable is one solution but I want to learn more about this tablet to be able to assist others, provide RIM or developers suggestions, etc.
My first inquiry has to do with the file sharing protocols because I see an option in the storage part of the main menu that offers a WIRELESS ( WIFI ) connection but the details suggest that it applies to retrieving media FROM the Playbook when using another computer or machine but I want to be able to do the opposite, transfer a file from another device to my netpad. The point is that if you know whether this is possible then please post this information as a reply to this listing because I currently keep this feature off to provide additional security or to minimize any mistakes.
A lot of electronics with Bluetooth allow you to copy or send pictures, songs and maybe even video between them when both are paired together but DOES THAT APPLY TO THE TECHNOLOGY on this webbook because I see the option to enable it ?
I hope for a better description, in the boxes on the page, in the future if this is reverse compatibly engineered or designed, in reference to exchanging information. My other complaint on this subject would be about the lack of a external user accessible micro memory card, which would of been far easier than all the above to me.
The last thing I want to mention has to do with these forums because I typed this one time earlier but received an error that erased everything and made me reenter my password, just to realize it failed to return me to the spot where I was - nor did trying the back button ( A Safety I Like Anyway ) on the browser. A automatic save would be a wonderful addition !
Solved! Go to Solution.

A silly follow question just to confirm, but the content will REMAIN on the machine ( in my case the Playbook ) once you drag it from another device while using file sharing on a wireless network AFTER YOU DISCONNECT FROM THE CONNECTION ?
My next comment should hopefully restore your faith in me after the uncertainty in my rebuttal inquiry but I just want to mention that I fail to see a SIGNIFICANT difference in being infected with viruses from transferring media while using the above features or using a micro memory chip and no problem because I understand they probably review years of data to build their wonderful products, plan their design, choose their equipment, parts, protocols, procedures, etc.
I got a couple final thoughts for you : The other major downfall which seemed more unusual to me was the lack of a user accessible mobile card for those of us who travel internationally because this seems not to pose a security threat AND LASTLY, RIM MAKES BETTER TECHNOLOGY THAN APPLE BUT LOSES A LOT OF THE RECOGNITION WITHOUT WALK IN COMPANY STORES WORLDWIDE.
Please pass on the message that I hope to see a laptop AND netbook ( only to enable more resources with the space compared to tablets ) made by this company some day in the near future, Christmas ?
