    IT related technical notes of NEW 8820 Wi-Fi BlackBerry

    Advertisement




    1. It's WiFi and GPS enabled
    2. It supports the 802.11 a/b/g WiFi standards
    3. 8GB memory cards are expected to be available later this year.
    4. Keyboard also available in AZERTY & QWERTZ to support different language groups.
    5. WEP, WPA and WPA2 security protocols are supported as well as Cisco Compatible Extensions for secure connectivity with Cisco wireless access points.
    6. Includes IPSec-based software claimed to support the most commonly deployed VPN gateways from vendors including Cisco, Check Point and others.
    7. Also supports UMA and thus with UMA can seamlessly switch voice calls between a wireless carrier's cellular network and a WiFi network.
    8. Incorporates a "new and powerful desktop media manager" – the Roxio Media Manager for BlackBerry, developed in conjunction with Sonic and based on the Roxio Easy Media Creator 9. RIM says it will "introduce a new level of simplicity by allowing users to easily search for media files on their computer, view and organise them, create MP3 music files from CDs, add audio tags, create playlists and automatically copy or convert pictures, music and videos for optimal playback on the smartphone."

    UNLESS it is for a BETA OS, it's at your own risk and I won't support it

    Maybe I'm still not understanding this claim by RIM "seamlessly switch voice calls between a wireless carrier's cellular network and a WiFi network". Does this mean I would have to have VoIP? I need more voice coverage, I have a laptop for data. I may just keep my 8700.

    Yup -- that's what happens when you rely on rumors and speculation... Nothing is confirmed and is subject to change until you see official announcements. A lot of people mistakenly assumed that TMO would be first since they have they are rolling out UMA but nothing really ever confirmed that they would have the first WiFi BB. UMA isn't the only use for WiFi anyway.

    Nope -- qwertz is the German keyboard layout.

    Now this is the device to get. This is definitely worth upgrading to. Now all I have to do is wait for Sprint to get it.

    What I know about the 8820, Cingular will get it first (bummer) I'm guessing because Tmo will get 8320. I think tmo will get the 8820 after the 8320 comes out.

    I'm confused, wasn't the media manager improved with the Curve? Is this to be a further improved version, or was the Curve media improvement on-device only?

    how much of a differance is the evdo and wifi?

    I would think Sprint would see how much of the 8830's they woudl sell before they bring on the new modle. Let's see..... it took them how long to bring around the 8830?? lol

    If I am not mistaken QWERTZ is correct if you are in Germany or some contry near there, it is one of the alternative options. Of course if you are a native English speaker and use it for most of your comunications a standard QWERTY would probably be better suited for you...

    Well, it really only took them about 2 or 3 months after Verzion got theirs, which was about 2 or 3 months behind Cingular's 8800 release, so Feb. 08 seems close if the same pattern holds.

    As for wifi vs edge, edge in actual usage doesn't come close to even 802.11b's speeds.

    Asides from VPN usage and eventual VoIP use, I don't see any point to wifi on the BB if it can't stream multimedia from the web. Specifically, rtsp feeds. WiFi synching seems like it would be horribly unsecure and a pain in the butt to setup.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.
