According to a Techworld report by Peter Judge, a dual mode BlackBerry with cellular and Wi-Fi is coming out by the end of the year.
Personally, I can go either way. I used to think that it was a feature that all new smartphones should have, but, as I really think about it, the reason for wanting Wi-Fi on my BlackBerry was because the cellular networks, less Verizon, are so darn slow. Additionally, I am never in enough places with free Wi-Fi access long enough to make it worth it.
I travel for business quite a bit and it is rare for organizations to have wide open networks anymore. I know some of you are saying that I haven’t been to where your work, however, most enterprises, per their auditors recommendation, are buttoning down their Wi-Fi implementations.
