Ahh, so that's what the WiFi indicator on the 8800's press shot was all about, eh? We've been hearing rumblings of a WiFi-enabled version of the BlackBerry 8800 for months before the darned thing's official release, and Pinstack's fanning the flames with a new comparison chart allegedly pitting the venerable 8700 against an "8820" that sports WiFi. Not much is known about the device at this point, but given the relatively modest bump in model number, we'd expect changes to be minor beyond the addition of the WAN radio. Pinstack's liking the chances of the 8820 launching by mid-year -- and given the 8800's lack of WCDMA, we think it couldn't possibly get out the door soon enough.
