So, some of us are looking forward to the BlackBerry Curve, and others the World Edition 8830, and maybe even to a new Pearl, but I bet rumblings of an 8820 model months ago had taken a backseat to all of that. Well, Engadget’s got their grubby mitts on the upcoming BlackBerry, which is, in short, 8800 + Wi-Fi. A small upgrade, but a huge one at the same time. Folks have been clamoring for for this for some time now.
While Wi-Fi was obviously the next surprise to come, when Balsillie was talking “back end of this year“, it gets you thinking about maybe a Christmas release for a Wi-Fi BlackBerry, so no sign of a hard device until, say, the fall. But here we are with shots considerably sooner, which (hopefully) suggests a sooner release date.
