    umm... right...?

    so does anyone know of any current devices that capitolize off of the microsd card's built-in WiFi abilities and is there any chance for a program to be written that would allow it to be used with one of the newer blackberries?

    An SD card has NO WI-Fi ability, it is a storage device, only your sevice has that abilittyy.

    hope that helps

    I've got this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Digital_card#SDIO
    and this http://www.sdcard.com/usa/TextPage.asp?Page=5

    Looks like the bbs need to support something called SPI bus topology.

    This is getting kinda useless. There won't be Wi-Fi on the Pearl, b/c by the time they develop the software to use it (and make it stable), I'm sure the "new Pearl" will already have it built-in and be ready to sell.

    Oh, and I'd rather wait to see the Pearl with wi-fi AND UMA vs. wi-fi alone (which isn't all that spectacular IMO, since the devices are slow enough anyway)

    don't be so sure. 2 weeks ago they interviewed the RIM co-Pres and he made clear that their focus is corporate (which is why the 8800 and 8820 are to have no camera) though they are pleased with the results from the 8100. it was already discussed that the 9xxx series is to come out by Q4 of '07 and there's a good chance their first 3g phone will come cameraless for Corporate as the 8800 did.
