Thinking of buying one to mess around with. Would the 16gb be enough for me if I have no intentions to get any games?

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the following noob questions.

- Is it possible to tether using my BB Torch on the PB Wifi? If so, how is the connection speed comparable to Iphone?

- Can any BB be used to tether? I'm thinking for changing to a 9780.

Thank you!

i have always asked people to just get this and screw the 3g where u spend more not only for the sim card but also the device.
There is no point: the playbook is already capable of 3g, with 4g once all our telco rolls it out.

Because im on 32gb with 100mb of space left

Do all of you tether? Due to policies i cant tether... its blocked out on my BB... having the PB will seem abit sad without the ability to surf on the go....

Hows the browser speed thru tether? I hope its better than bridging?

idk if is psychological or what, but through tether, under 3g conditions, seems like the pages loads way much faster on the playbook than on the phone.

Speed still slow, comparable if u tether on the com. On the com i can hit around 1mbps plus as i shown earlier, not sure about playbook. maybe if i have time and get my hands on a 3g device, i will run speedtest. But, on 3g, still so-so

Not psychological..i am sure browser loads faster on tether than on bridge. I think it is likely because bridge is using your BIS which is through RIM server?
