    Why is there a windows mobile gui on the blackberry?
    When you scroll on the red bar to the end, you'll see Global Capabilities and the blackberry a windows mobile gui.

    no the 8800 has the RIM modem too - as does the 8100 Pearl! I use them as a modem all the time for my PC to connect when there's no wifi network around. Wireless Internet is just the browser and EvDo ability, I think.

    Neither of those mean WiFi. Wireless internet means internet access through the carrier's wireless network. RIM modem has nothing to do with WiFi. You don't use modems with WiFi.

    If WiFi's not listed it's either a mistake or not included (more likely the latter).

    Did anyone ever say that the 8830 would have GPS? Odds are that VZW would disable it anyway...

    Is that a WM screen?

    I wouldn't rely on screen shots on ad copy. If you nitpick the 8800 video you'll see screens that don't ship on the 8800 either. And I doubt you'll get a background image with the "Can you hear me now?" guy (and crew) like you see on that page either.

    As far as I can tell, yes. There is a windows logo on top and it carries the same icons used in the gui. Now I don't think RIM is going to use Windows Mobile but I thought it was odd.

    By the way, here is a screenshot of what I saw.

    Its impossible to use that anyway (the WM clock).... it requires a touch screen to navigate..... or really awkard scrolling with the trackball.

    It has GPS according to www.blackberry8800.com/8830 .. however Verizon will most likely disable it.

    Looks like they updated the screen shot on the website and removed the WM logo...
