    blackberry wi-fi is on the way :)

    Advertisement



    I read a post on the forums that there might be wifi on a new blackberry curve. So i thought i would post this i found on cnet's crave.

    Well, well, well...what do we have here? According to the kids over at Phone Scoop, the FCC has approved a Wi-Fi-enabled (802.11 a/b/g) BlackBerry device, which is a great sign since Research in Motion has been talking about adding this feature for more than a year now. A few other details about the device: it's said to be a GSM/EDGE smart phone with Bluetooth, a microSD slot, and it resembles the RIM BlackBerry 8800 and BlackBerry 8830 in the design department. No word on carrier or availability, but RIM CEO Jim Balsillie has said the company would release a Wi-Fi-equipped model by the end of the year. Stay tuned for more.

    this is the link: http://crave.cnet.com/8300-1_105-1.h...-fi+blackberry

    That would opportunity for the bb and be a necessary competitor for the iphone.

    I'd get one today if available!

    Would I have to be in a "hot spot" to use the internet with a Wi-Fi equipped BlackBerry?~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I sure hope this comes out after the 8320. I really like the form factor of the 83xx series. But who knows. I really need wifi and will be forced to get the first one out. We'll see!

    No. You can use the BB browser. Its not certain that wifi will allow you to browse at those speeds yet, or if its just able to use the wifi for cell calls. We'll see when it comes out!

    You would have to be to use the wi-fi capabilities... A hot spot or in range of an accessible wireless ntwk - home, office, hotel... Amd my understanding is that thos speeds are far superior to browsing on EDGE or EVDO.

    I'm not referring to tmo's 8320. I just mention that cause I thought the article might be related to that post. The article states that the phone well be in the style of the 8800 and the 8830. Also the article states that a carrier has not been decide for the phone. So I'm assuming its not the 8320 that's coming out for tmo but a different bb with wifi maybe intended for other carriers which would be nice. Of course this is just a guess and for all i know it could be the 8320 their talking about.
