Talking What is wi-fi for when pertaining to a cell phone?

Please Login to Remove!


First time poster! Before I begin, I need to apologize - I lied when I registered - I do not currently own a BB, but wasn't permitted to complete registration w/o entering something.

I am currently researching BB's, and I'm leaning toward the 8800 or more than likely waiting for the 8820 or 8900 to come out later this year.

I keep reading about these phones of the future may have wi-fi. Can anyone please explain why wi-fi would be needed for a cell phone? I understand wi-fi provides a hot-spot for laptops, but how is ot beneficial for a cell?

I currently own a Palm Treo 650 - I like it, but it's a few years old and I'm ready to upgrade. My service provider is Sprint.

Thanks! Oh, by the way - great site you have here!!
