RIM's new BlackBerry 7270 goes WiFi

BlackBerry 7280

Uh oh, Palm, get ready. Right now at the Gartner's ITXPO Symposium RIM is demoing their new BlackBerry 7270, which is capable of 802.11b WiFi. Granted, it's a VoWLAN VoIP custom job that interfaces with business phone systems and all that (don't look so surprised), but all the same we're glad that some big players are hitting us up with WiFi, despite the fact that they're not keeping it open—which will just have to come in time. Now if only they'd pair it up with Bluetooth, like the BlackBerry 7290 they just announced.
