Ruh-oh. Just when I was almost excited about getting the BlackBerry 8800, I find this post on BlackBerryForums. Members have been going back and forth deliberating about details regarding the 8800 being released on Canadian carrier Rogers, and one user, nsimpson, reports that the device will not come with wi-fi – this, apparently, coming from Rogers’ head office.
“Got confirmation that NO it will not have wifi in the Rogers version. Sad to say that no it doesn’t, this is coming first hand from someone who has played with it. Other bad news is that the 9XXX series version will not be in canada in 07 (coming from rogers road map).”
We’ll take this with a grain of salt for now. We haven’t heard anything, apart from this little nugget of possibilities, from the Rogers camp regarding the 8800’s release, and I’m starting to get a little anxious. I’d prefer to post more than rumours, folks, so if any of you have details, by all means, let us know.
