Canada's Rogers has been offering UMA on a selection of BlackBerry models to end users for some time, but the technology never seems to have fully caught on anywhere in the world -- which is strange, considering how awesome the concept of seamless WiFi-to-cellular call transitions might sound.

This sorta winsome device packs everything you know and love about the 8800 into a strikingly familiar package -- OK, identical -- package and adds WiFi for the Rogers Home Calling Zone UMA service.

Well this is fun, apparently Rogers Wireless -- and likely FIDO -- is set to offer a UMA service (to bridge their GSM network with your home network) come May this year. Purportedly dubbed the Rogers Home Calling Zone, the service would roll out to consumer customers -- no mention in the "news" abo...
