Rogers BlackBerry 8820 available?

There have been reports that the Wi-Fi-packing BlackBerry 8820 is hitting Canadian carrier Rogers today. There hasn’t been a press release, nor is the device showing up on the online store, but let’s face it, the clandestine BlackBerry launch is Rogers’ forté. Although it might be a little late to the game, the Wi-Fi would fit right into Rogers’ recent UMA service, the Home Calling Zone, which would let you shoot your calls over the internet and save your mobile minutes when you’re at home. The trusty ol’ BlackBerry 8800 is listed as out of stock, which is a pretty good sign that it’s being retired in favour of the newer model. It’s hard to imagine that anyone will bite at the 8820 with the Bold right around the corner, especially if the 8820 has a $349 price tag (on 3 year contract, no less). Any Canadians out there want to swing by their Rogers outlet and see if they’re in?
