    While there are many apps to transfer via Bluetooth - I believe they only allow for transfers between iDevices. I haven't seen anything that'll go from a different device (e.g. Blackberry) to the iPad.

    The only thing I can suggest is either e-mail them to yourself, use your computer to transfer between the two or use the Blackberry to upload the photos to an online storage "cloud." Not to be a shill for the company, but Dropbox has a Blackberry app and an iPad app. You could create a free account and then use Dropbox to transfer between the two. I'm not sure you can transfer to Dropbox via Bluetooth, however. But, definitely with WiFi or 3G...

    Sorry I didn't provide better help/answer.

    It would require an app for both devices, specifically written to communicate with each other. I'm not aware of any such app pairs for Blackberry.

    However, I'm reasonably sure that there is a DropBox or Box.com app for the Blackberry. With one of these apps on both devices (free account) you could transfer photos between the two devices with only slightly more hassle than a direct transfer; for some purposes it may even be easier. As long as you have internet access anyway.

    If bluetooth is the only choice, then you can use a computer as a go between. Use whatever method a Blackberry uses to transfer photos to the computer, then use an app like PhotoSync to copy them to the iPad.
