Even with everything current, the bridge is still buggy, in my experience. The snails paced bridge browser problem with the earlier OS seems to have been solved. But I still get the window popping up prompting me to save this or that when just simply loading a page.
On the bridge email, I see the same thing as the OP, still. Sometimes deleting an email happens right away, sometimes there is a second or two delay, and sometimes it doesn't show deleted until the app is closed and started again. When I've selected an email and go to the next, the first email sometimes changes to read right away, sometimes not, and sometimes changes to read upon selecting a third message; but, of course, the read/unread status is correct after closing the app and starting again.
I've also encountered the situation where I can scroll down some ways in my email inbox contents and then hit bottom, which isn't really bottom, instead far from it. I'll close the app, start again, restart the PlayBook, double-soft reset the BlackBerry, and none of that fixes it. I don't want to go to the trouble of un-pairing and re-pairing, so I say to hell with it and read my email on the BlackBerry. Then later it working again on its own and I can scroll down to the real bottom of my inbox. Go figure.
Anyway, to the OP, it isn't you...or most likely isn't you. The bridge apps have moments brilliance and then all the sudden buggy stuff is happening. If you can stick it out, it will get better, I predict.
EDIT: Also, regarding "slow" ... it is hard to say. Could be your data throughput between the BlackBerry smartphone and the network, and what speed it is connected at. If you are on EDGE, then the perception of being on dialup with the bridge browser isn't surprising. The speed with the smartphone connected via wifi should be almost as fast as the regular browser with the PlayBook connected to wifi.
