Is it possible to transfer files between your computer and Playbook via Bluetooth?

Re: Transferring files via Bluetooth

Unfortunately, no.  Your best option for wireless transfer is wifi, if you can put both on same network. See knowledge base article: How to transfer files to and from the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.  I reserved a fixed IP for the PB on my home network. That allowed me to drag a shortcut for the PB to the PC desktop. Makes things easy the second time around. Although I think it really should be possible to do Bluetooth transfer, wifi is faster than any BT connection, at least on my system.
