    Question WiFi SD card for Blackberry?

    Advertisement



    • Is there any chance of someone producing a WiFi card that would fit the microSD slot in, say, the BB 8800?

    This has been done on other platforms (eg. Palm), and there is a gaping market hole here waiting to be filled. If it were possible, given stock BB hardware and if I could do it, I would; someone could make a bundle with that.

    i the wifi micro sd card already exists its just the software at rim that is not compatible , but why would you need a wifi card if you have an unlimited plan , it may be usefull if you have a tiny 1mb limit but thats about it .

    It would be usefull for the faster speed if you are somewhere that has free wifi access

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~also keep in mind the size of the card. There isn't much wiggle room there.

    I did a google search for SD Wifi...interesting results. They seem like they would fit in the BB but I doubt it would just be "plug & play"

    I'd be concerned about having a decent antenna on a microSD WiFi card...

    someone told me that all 8800s have wi-fi built in but the cell provider locks it up or something like that. anyone know if theres any truth in this?

    I haven't heard of anyone confirming that the 8800 has the necessary hardware. I'm not popping mine open...

    Yet.
