Rogers is supposed to launch a UMA program similar to Tmobile's Hotspot on May 6th. They are supposedly launching the 8120 around that same time.

lol, WTH?

Rogers is getting the 8120 in Q2.

Yes, that is vague, but that is all we have so far.

Rogers is launching UMA in 1 week, so I expect it soon after...

UMA = Unlicensed Mobile Access

It is a form of VoIP in which you can make calls over a wifi network rather than using the service towers. great if you're indoors and mobile network reception is limited.
