Wi-Fi Capable BlackBerry 8820 Becomes Official

Illustration for article titled Wi-Fi Capable BlackBerry 8820 Becomes Official

We saw this Wi-Fi equipped BlackBerry make its way through the labyrinthine corridors of the FCC a few weeks ago, but now RIM's making it official. The BlackBerry 8820 is coming, and it's going to have GPS, 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, microSD/microSDHC, and quad-band GSM. Wi-Fi fans, this is your BlackBerry. And if T-Mobile is looking for a killer device to add to its HotSpot @Home stable, they should look long and hard at the 8820. [MarketWire]

How about we make this the official "rant" comment section for the Eureka iPhone contest? Good job Giz for not leaving a comments section. You must have known how retarded your choice was for #1. I had the impression it was an invention contest and not for fake ads in Mad magazine. I guess I should have just flipped through the wacky Japanese inventions handbook and randomly picked something to win. I can't believe I gave you 2 of my best ideas....ideas for products that could actually be built right now and really be used. I'm sure I'll be seeing them for sale in one of your banners soon. Tongue jacket!! Totally serious and ingenius!! Yeah!
