Wi-Fi coming to BlackBerry this year


BlackBerry devices are synonymous with business users on the go, being able to keep in touch with the office while out on the road. Research in Motion, the Canadian based-company that created the BlackBerry, is said to be getting ready to teach a few more tricks to the not-so-old dog. In addition to some of the other stuff that they’ve mentioned in the past – like a camera, GPS, expandable memory, etc. – there is word that Wi-Fi is on its way to the BlackBerry as well.

Co-CEO James Balsillie has gone on the record that they are working on a device that sports “both Wi-Fi and cellular technology”, and I say, it’s about time. You can’t really be a true business machine without some sort of WLAN (preferably G) connectivity.

This could prove to be a Godsend for all your high bandwidth users out there (like you Sona Mobile video watchers), reducing your monthly bill. Of course, if its on the company tab, who’s counting anyways?
