This is priceless: RIM’s new PlayBook has no email client. No, that’s not the priceless part. (Well it is, but it’s not the most recent priceless part.) RIM’s “solution” to this is BlackBerry Bridge, an app that lets you tether your PlayBook to your BlackBerry, using it’s email capabilities. Here’s the priceless part: apparently no one at RIM told the folks at AT&T about this, because they’ve blocked the app from working on its network, presumably because the carrier charges extra for tethering—this according to a post on The Loop.
Two CEOs, three COOs and none of them thought to check with AT&T about this before they launched? You just can’t make this stuff up. (via The Loop.)
